#6995 closed defect (bug) (fixed)

wp-app.php picking up query string on some hosts

Description

Some hosts (such as Dreamhost) pass the query string along with the $_SERVERPATH_INFO?. These hosts pass another value $_SERVERORIG_PATH_INFO?. The attached patch will use ORIG_PATH_INFO in wp-app.php where applicable, so that query string data doesn't leak in and confuse the path logic.

Is this the same thing that causes the problem with step=2 being thrown into the Blog and WordPress urls as reported on these threads?
