My version never updates unless I comment out htmlpurifier.module line 136 in _htmlpurifier_load():

<?php
if (class_exists('HTMLPurifier')) return;
?>

It never reloads the library to update the version and continues to show the warning message.

Are you running FastCGI, or something persistent like that? The HTML Purifier module should get reloaded whenever a new request is made...

PHP is running as an apache module on CentOS 5. This is an existing instalation that had the version stuck at 4.1.0 on the status page.

It looks like this was a bug in htmlpurifier module; I've fixed it in CVS and will be releasing a new version shortly.
