New Comment:

well, I upgraded to 4.3.3 now.

But how to make sure that this is not a PHP bug? I am really sure that
it (the share and the files) is writable and readable.

1. 4.3.3 is already released
2. And it's the permissions. Not bug.

well, I expierenced today this error message (see the output field in
the bugreport)
But I checked it by running cmd.exe (the Windows NT standard shell) as
webserver user and I can simply access any files. The share is writable
and on a FAT32 partition so no chmods or so on apply.

Well some PHP details:
It seems that I can use any filesystem function in PHP to fail to
access it. (tested with file)
file_exists return false.
I am using PHP as apache module as distributed on [url][/url]
Apache 1.3.28 with PHP 4.3.2
Something that maybe apply: Today I upgraded my Apache to 1.3.28 from

Reproduce code:
var_dump( file("\\\\somehost\\someshare\\somefile.txt") );

/* (line 8 is quoted in the bugreport) */

Actual result:
Warning: file(\\pc4\hd2\do_chroot) [function.file.php]: failed to open
stream: Permission denied in c:\programme\apache
group\apache\htdocs\somescript.php on line 8
