it's quite bad. especially the fact that a global register_globals On
will be overriden and set to Off if i specify

  php_value register_globals On
                             ^^
                            !!!!

in the httpd.conf file.

so is this a bug against php4 or apache? php4 i'd say...

what about e.g. bug #127574, which is clearly dependent on this (i
think)? how would i go and merge this with my newly filed (fictional)
bug #999999? or should i let the squirrelmail maintainer do that? i
figure that if i am sure this is right, it doesn't hurt to be doing bugu
merging myself, even if the package is not right, and debian-devel is
CCd, right?

i couldn't even get that to work. i have it set to on for
/usr/share/squirrelmail and /usr/share/squirrelmail/src, and then i
simply placed a test file in each directory, giving me only phpinfo(),
and in both cases, phpinfo() lists it as globally On, but locally Off?
