When executing this code from STDIN (via CLI), an extra 'D' character appears in the output for the first time the function is executed.

It behaves normally when its reading the code from a file. Could this be the 'D' character from the 'Ctrl-D' combination somehow appearing?

'./configure' '--prefix=/usr/local/php5' '--with-apxs2' '--disable-cgi' '--disable-ipv6' '--with-openssl' '--enable-bcmath' '--with-bzip2' '--with-curl' '--with-gd' '--enable-gd-native-ttf' '--with-imap' '--with-mysql=/usr/local/lib/mysql' '--enable-soap' '--with-xmlrpc' '--with-zlib-dir=/usr'

Reproduce code:
function a() {
	$var = 4;
	print $var . "\n";

Did a little more testing, and this is more of an input/output issue.

<?= "\n" . 4 . "\n" ?>

PHP4 did not suffer from this issue.

Sorry folks,

It just didn't reproduce on linux/php4 (I tested it on linux, as I didn't have php4 installed on the freebsd machine at the time). This seems to be a FreeBSD specific issue. 

This seems to be a problem with other languages like perl as well, so this bug could very well be marked as bogus. I don't like how it messes up the output though. Is there a way we can clear the buffer or something?

Nope, no clue "how to clear a buffer".
