That's what you get when you play around with references without understanding how they work in PHP.
In PHP 5 your script works as you expect. Won't be fixed in PHP 4.

Well, actually I'm playing with references without 
knowing how buggy they are (they are not 'working' as 
you say). There is no documentation that make me 
understand 'how they work in PHP'.

No flame, enjoy your day.
