When Drupal is installed in a subdirectory the 'run the database upgrade
script' link erroneously points to the root folder. 

The fix? Include settings.php so we can properly set the HTML base href
using the $base_url variable.

I've verified this to be a problem in Konqueror and not Firefox. Haven't
tested IE or Safari.

I can verify that the update.php script is broken when drupal is
installed in a subdirectory.. I applied this patch and it works
perfectly using Safari, Mozilla, IE and Opera..

I rerolled the patch against current HEAD. Because this is a one line
patch, I set the status of this patch 'Ready to be committed'..

Please apply!

I can confirm this. I thought It was my rewrite rules tat broke this. 

+1 for the solution,
