Watch the attributions.  Joshua didn't ask the question; he (I) answered it.

mod_speling is also a possibility, but it is less likely than 
multiviews.  If mod_speling is the cause, then the URL reported by the 
browser would change to file.php.old, and he didn't report that 
happening.  (But he might have just not looked.)
