Description:
------------
Unless I misunderstand the (scarce) documentation, using ReflectionProperty's getValue() should work on all public properties but should throw an exception on private or protected. I guess the getValue() method just checks for the numerical value of public and not public static (257 i think?).

Reproduce code:
---------------
class String
{
	public static $fails  = 5;
	public $works = 5;
}
$prop1= new ReflectionProperty('String', 'works');
$prop2= new ReflectionProperty('String', 'fails');
$obj= new String();
//works
var_dump($prop1->getValue($obj));
//exception
var_dump($prop2->getValue($obj));

Expected result:
----------------
prints "int(5)"

Actual result:
--------------
Fatal error: Uncaught exception 'ReflectionException' with message 'Cannot access non-public member' in /home/irv/public_html/pureswank/src/reftest.php:74 Stack trace: #0 {main}

This bug has been fixed in CVS.

Snapshots of the sources are packaged every three hours; this change
will be in the next snapshot. You can grab the snapshot at

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

Still we cannot use getValue() on implicit or dynamic properties. (implicit properties require #26182 to be fixed
correctly first).
