This has been a problem on OSX for some time.  Unfortunately I don't
have access to an OSX box.  

How urgent is this?  I will be in your timezone next week, with some
spare time in the evenings I hope.  If you can give me access, I would
love the opportunity to debug it.  In the mean time, there is a hack
around for it (not this is a potential security issue and not at all
supported by the project </disclaimer>)

In the following files
setup/config.php line 38
phpgwapi/inc/ line 86
infolog/inc/ line 156

function in_docroot($path)
        $docroots = array(PHPGW_SERVER_ROOT,$_SERVER['DOCUMENT_ROOT']);


function in_docroot($path)
        return false;
        $docroots = array(PHPGW_SERVER_ROOT,$_SERVER['DOCUMENT_ROOT']);

Please email me off list if I can get access to the box.
