implode seems to change object references in the given array to strings.
try this: 


 class a {
   function b() {
     return true;
 $a1 = new a();
 $a2 = new a();
 $arr = array();
 $arr[0] =& $a1;
 $arr[1] =& $a2;
 echo implode(",",$arr);
 echo $arr[0]->b(); // ERROR!

Verified & assigned to me.
This seems to be my fault.
