Consider the following script:

<?
class test 
{
	var $x;
	var $y;
	
	function test ()
	{
		$this->x = 0;
		$this->y = 0;
	}
	
	function set ($x, $y)
	{
		$this->x = $x;
		$this->y = $y;
	}
	
}
$mumu = array();
$gaga = array();

for($i=0;$i<3;$i++)
{
	$test = new test ();
	$test->set($i, $i);
	$mumu["xx".$i] = $test;
}

for($i=0;$i<5;$i++)
{
	$test = new test ();
	$test->set($i, $i);
	$gaga["xx".$i] = $test;
}

$fff = array_diff($mumu, $gaga);
$ggg = array_diff($gaga, $mumu);

echo "<pre>";
print_r($fff);
echo "</pre>";

echo "<pre>";
print_r($ggg);
echo "</pre>";
?>



the following is the output from a server with php 
4.0.4pl1:
Array
(
)
Array
(
    [xx3] => test Object
        (
            [x] => 3
            [y] => 3
        )

    [xx4] => test Object
        (
            [x] => 4
            [y] => 4
        )

)


and the following is the ouput with php 4.0.5:
Array
(
)
Array
(
)

the php.ini is the same on both servers.

The problem is that array_diff compares the string-represantation of the arguments.

And in the case of objects, it is always "Object", and thus considered equal.

This is currently expected behaviour, though it'd be be better if it weren't... string-comparasation by array_diff & co is not satisfactionary in case of objects. (nor arrays)

Suspended.

expected behaviour, not bug -> bogus.
