Yes, I am.   I guess I should've been paying attention on thesite.

I thought we were running under some distribution of linux?  Or does this 
bug affect linux too?

I tried working around it, but looked at all the environment variables set 
by Apache and found that the data required (bits after the actual file name 
- eg "/foo/bar") just wasn't there in any of the variables.

I'm looking at your fu2a.cfm, and it seems to use cgi.query_string and 
cgi.script_name  --  or is this the "unfixed" version after the patch?

I'm on the latest stable release, 1.3.14 which test.evolt.org is running, 
and the bug is still there.  So I guess he found a patch.

Dan?  Are you around?  Where was that patch from?  ;)
