Get Value of PHP_AUTH_USER

phpMyAdmin 2.6.4-pl3
MySQL 5.0

The following code isn't providing a value. I can't understand why:

$current_user = $_SERVER['PHP_AUTH_USER'];
printf( "Current User: %s<br>", $current_user);

If you are using PHP5.0 there is a known bug which means that PHP_AUTH_USER does not work

Do

<?php
phpinfo();
?>

and check the PHP version number
