php 5.1.(1) and clients php.ini doesn't work

We work with suphp instead of phpsuexec but this is php related issue:

We have to notice that php 5.1.0 and 5.1.1 ignore the clients php.ini (example /home/user/public_html/php.ini)!
PHP 4.4.1 and PHP 5.0.5 worked perfectly.

Can someone confirm this?
We need a solution for this before we can upgrade .. :D

I *think* I experienced something similar last week. The person who hosts my site, is a reseller...And the company he hosts thru suffered an attack. He decided to move companies and when he did, I couldn't get some of my php scripts to work, no matter what I tried...Even tho they worked on the old hosts. The old hosts run PHP 4.4.1 & the new ones run 5.1.0.

In the end, we had a long chat with our old hosts & received assurances they were taking all steps they could to prevent future attacks & so we went back to them - and my scripts all work perfectly again!

So..Although this doesn't answer your question per se, it does seem to suggest that there are conflicts between the old and new versions?
