The following code:

$p = "<wddxPacket version='1.0'><header/><data><struct><var name='var1'><number/></var><var name='var2'><number>1</number></var></struct></data></wddxPacket>";

shows that the variable 'var1' gets a random value after deserialization. I would expect that 'var1' wouldn't get set, or at least assigned with the value 0.

If you can't reproduce it the first time, reload the script a couple of times.

Kind regards
Mark Pors

Could verify this with PHP 4.2.0 on Compaq Tru64. Verification with PHP 4.3.0-dev from 2002/07/30 failed. So seems to be fixed in CVS. Can anyone of PHP-DEV confirm this?
