You should probably quote the lines above this block, too.

(Line #031) $full_yabbse_path = '.';
(Line #048) include_once ($full_yabbse_path . '/Settings.php');

and you should quote Settings.php:

(Line #067) $sourcedir = "/home/something/board/Sources";

so before Errors.php is included, $sourcedir is *always* set to a value,
overwriting any variable that is passed through the URL.

We can define $sourcedir variable through URL and include some other
PHP script local or remote if remote inclusion is enabled in php.ini file.
Bug in not exploitable if PHP's registar_globals is set to off. 

see above - you can't

Add this line before include_once() lines mentioned above.

----cut here----
if (!isset($sourcedir)) $sourcedir = "";
