Package: php5
Version: 5.3.2-2
Severity: important

Posting the content of a form containing more than 1000 checkboxes
yields an array of maximum 999 elements. Here ist a test-case:

if (isset($_POST['Action']) && ($_POST['Action'] == 'do_it')) {
   echo count($_POST['SEL']);
else {
  echo "<form method=post><input type=submit name=Action value=do_it>\n";
  for ($i = 0; $i <= 2000; $i ++) 
    echo "$i <input type=checkbox name='SEL[]' checked value=$i>\n", 
  echo "</form>\n";
