Test with CLI version of PHP 5.1:

getcwd() yields directory of the call. $argv[0], PHP_SELF, SCRIPT_NAME, 
SCRIPT_FILENAME and PATH_TRANSLATED contain the path of the script as used 
in the paramater to the PHP call (X:\pathto\php.exe script.php).

But in this scenario (X:\pathto\php.exe script.php) the path is set anyway.

I think we should require this. I see no real point in allowing a direct 
call as in foobar.phpsh. *.phpsh is a disturbing file extension and it is 
not foolproof.
