I simply scrap anything like that and rework it in PHP :)

That would explain the 'compiled in' - Never bothered with 1 as 2 was just 
becoming stable AND at that time I needed Windows machines as well. That build 
is from 2006 but since there have only been a few more security fixes since 
and it works .....

It's not included in the normal distribution even, so I had to search for it. 
There does not seem to be anything newer on my package search, and that was 
the version number on the one that was found. Everything else seems to have 
been wound up with no activity since 2002. It may be old enough not to be 
noticed, but on the other hand it *IS* a known security risk so needs updating 
or stripping!
