PHP Version: 4.2.3 OS: Linux

<form action="script.php" method="POST">
<input name="variable" value="lost and found"><br>
lost: <input name="array[lost]" value="lost and found"><br>
'lost': <input name="array['lost']" value="lost and found"><br>
long key: <input name="array[testoflongkey]" value="lost and found"><br>
<input type="submit"><br>

print_r ($_POST);

When the form is submited (with "lost and found" string as input value) the following output is displayed:

    [variable] => lost and found
    [array] => Array
            [lost] =>  and found
            ['lost'] =>  found
            [testoflongkey] =>  and found


As you can see there are characters missing in result array.
