The following works under php2, but fails under php3:

echo "$$a";

Php3 says: "$b";
Php2 says: "Test!!";

This breaks nearly all my apps... :-/

Not really a bug.  More like a change in behaviour.  The string embedded
variable handling in PHP3 only handles simple cases.  The way around
the problem is to use: echo "normal string stuff ".$$var." more string stuff";

We will however consider this report a "request for feature" ;)
