Accessing $this->values['foo']['bar']['2'] does not work like expected inside a class while accessing $values['foo']['bar']['2'] does work like expected.. It's a little hard to explain so I'll just let the code speak for itself:

Reproduce code:
$values = array(
	'foo' => array(
		'bar' => array(
			'2' => 'whatever'

var_dump($values['foo']['bar']['2']); // This works as expected

class MyClass
	var $values = array(
		'foo' => array(
			'bar' => array(
				'2' => 'whatever'

	function __construct()
		var_dump($this->values['foo']['bar']['2']); // This doesn't...
		var_dump($this->values['foo']['bar'][2]); // This doesn't either...

$c = new MyClass;

Expected result:
string(8) "whatever"
string(8) "whatever" 
string(8) "whatever" 

Actual result:
string(8) "whatever"
