Got this rather strange error msg. that asks for a bug report. Ok here we go, it happens here - when I try to 

1. generate an object from class objectFactory,
2. inside a class method,
3. and returning a reference to it (without the reference it worked)

$factory = &objectFactory::install();

class objectFactory
function &install()
        global $globar;

        if (!$globar[objectFactory])
            $globar[objectFactory] = new objectFactory();
        return $globar[objectFactory];

Hope that helped.. 
Cheers - Martin

Can't reproduce with the latest CVS. Can you try the latest CVS?

Sorry, can't - we need to upgrade our software first. Exept the error msg it works ok, so a '@' solves my problems.

Thx - Martin

Thank you for taking the time to report a problem with PHP.
Unfortunately your version of PHP is too old -- the problem
might already be fixed. Please download a new PHP
version from

If you are able to reproduce the bug with one of the latest
versions of PHP, please change the PHP version on this bug report
to the version you tested and change the status back to "Open".
Again, thank you for your continued support of PHP.
