I didn't realize that posting my message twice causes such a big problem for
you.

It does not matter if I redirect the user to the main-page or to a special
error page.
Fact is, that the error treatment does not work correctly, when the tipped
url has the extension php.

there is no panic around here, especially not here in southern france.
it's just making us crazy beeing hacked from people and we want to defend,
say answer these hacks,
just redirecting them to the main page.


hope i could make things clear and did not bug anybody here <g>
