With Ming2.0a (the version thats including with php5.0.2)

It seems impossible to display text with SWFText object.

The addString() method appears to not add the string to an SWFText object.

Looking at the swf output in a decompiler the created SWFText object exists, with the correct colour etc, but no text string to display.

I've tried numerous examples from the 'net, such as
(example had to be modified to point to a valid .fdb)

all display the same problem

Reproduce code:
(example had to be modified to point to a valid .fdb)

Expected result:
320x240 flash movie, with yellow text 'fnar! fnar!' centered 

Actual result:
No text is displayed

I have exactly the same issue.
Same version of PHP/ming.

Object exists, but no text string is added using the addString() function.

Please try using this CVS snapshot:
For Windows:

Seems to be a ming bug, as addString() segfaults for me somewhere in libming.
