I forgot to provide straight information how to fix this bug until there
will be an official patch. I hope it was clear from my previous email,
but if not, there is one of possible solutions:

find function php_check_safe_mode_include_dir in file
main/fopen_wrappers.c and change its last statement from

return 0;


return -1;

(you can find it at line 253 in PHP version 4.3.2).

Then recompile PHP, install it and restart web server.

To test it, create simple PHP script owned by some regular user, which
will try to include /etc/passwd for example.

echo("trying to read /etc/passwd");

This script should fail on safe mode error (when safe mode is enabled,
of course).

Best regards
