$_POST arrays problem...

Hi, I'm experiencing a problem with sending arrays with 'post' method. It seems the data are being truncated, for example I have a number of checkboxes with the name "mark[]" and values like "123", "456", "789".
When I submit the form, here's what I get:

results in:
array(1) { ["mark"]=>  array(3) { [0]=>  string(1) "3" [1]=>  string(1) "6" [2]=>  string(1) "9" }}

It seems like only the last character is in the array. I used HTTP header viewer to check what's being sent from my browser and it's ok there, it sends the full data...
I put this 'var_dump' to the very first line of a file so nothing should have a chance to modify data (I've also got 'output_buffering' off in php.ini)
When I do the same on another machine, it's working as expected, of course.
So I think it's either apache or php might be configured incorrectly.

Can anyone give me some directions on where to search? Thanks in advance.

It looks very similar, except there weren't data type names, doing something like:
echo $_POST['mark'][0]

gives the same one-letter result...

Anyway, what I did is I wiped everything and reinstalled from scratch and now it's working Smile
So I guess the topic may be closed, unless someone else has the same problem and doesn't want to solve it the same way as I did.
Thanks for your help!
