CVE-2007-0095: phpMyAdmin <= 22.214.171.124 information disclosure

2.9.2 is out. Its built and should be on the mirrors soon.
It doesn't look like 2.9.2 fixes this though.
The demo server at http://pma.cihar.com/STABLE/ runs 2.9.2, but directly
after logging in reveals a path:

The demo server in comment 4 seems to have been updated to 188.8.131.52 but still
shows the same problem.
The demo server in comment 4 now advertises usage of 184.108.40.206 and the problem
Same problem on phpMyAdmin 220.127.116.11 further on:

Proposal of a possible fix for CVE-2007-0095
Can somebody please review this patch carefully, because upstream seems
not to be interested to solve this issue at all.
