Yes, I thought so when I first read it, but I didn't feel like bothering
with commentary when I posted.
First, it seemed more like an Apache issue. Then, why would this one
function be a problem? Doesn't everything go into memory? So, I went to
php.net/dlopen to research what this function does. Turns out it's not in
the manual. Is this a function that's used by PHP internals or something?
