This problem is absolutely critical if you do DB cleanups, transactions processing or other similar things in shutdown functions. Can be especially bad if you need to commit/rollback transactions with persistent DB connections.

----------
<?php
function boo()
{
	...do_anything...; // never ever gets called
}

register_shutdown_function("boo");
set_time_limit(3); // not necessary, just to show the error sooner

for (;;) { // infinite loop to simulate long processing
}
?>
----------

Error message:

Fatal error: Maximum execution time of 3 seconds exceeded in c:\exp.php on line 10

Fatal error: Maximum execution time of 3 seconds exceeded in c:\exp.php on line 4

Does not depend on whether we run script as CGI/SAPI or CLI.

Report #14542 looks similar but is different IMHO.

This script works just fine for me (using CLI):

<?php
 
error_log ("Start\n", 3, "test.log");

function boo()
{
  error_log ("Shutdown - function 'foo'\n", 3, "test.log");
}

register_shutdown_function("boo");

/* not necessary, just to show the error sooner */
set_time_limit(1); 

/* infinite loop to simulate long processing */
for (;;) {}

error_log ("\nEnd\n", 3, "test.log");

?>

In test.log I have now:
----cut----
Start
Shutdown - function 'foo'
----cut----

Which is the expected output.
Can you try this script?

And this is related to http://bugs.php.net/bug.php?id=14542
(and maybe to http://bugs.php.net/bug.php?id=14251 ?)

I tested your script. The output is:

PHP Fatal error:  Maximum execution time of 1 second exceeded in c:\exp.php on line 16
PHP Fatal error:  Maximum execution time of 1 second exceeded in c:\exp.php on line 7

"test.log" contains only one "Start" line.

I tried with both my own (pretty much cleaned up) php.ini and "recommended" php.ini.
I suspect it is only Windows-related problem.

I can not reproduce this with PHP CGI/CLI/Apache DSO,
but Steph tested the script under windows and
got the same results as ceeam@mail.ru did so this is
definately a windows-only bug.

This is related to http://bugs.php.net/bug.php?id=16820 (see comment from 21 Jul 2:46am CDT)
You can find my patch at http://strony.wp.pl/wp/wmeler/.
These are old issues ...

This bug has been fixed in CVS.

Thank you for the report, and for helping us make PHP better.
