When starting a PHP script from the commandline as a background process, the php process goes into stopped state immediatly.

Reproduce code:
bash> php foo.php &

Expected result:
PHP should execute foo.php in the background

Actual result:
The PHP process is suspended (state=T in a ps -ax). Bringing it to foreground with fg resumes the process, bg or kill -CONT however is not working.
This did work fine in PHP 4.3.8.

With Debian's new package the problem is back, after playing around with the configure parameters I found that --with-readline works OK, but --with-libedit (which is used by Debian, but which I did not enable when testing the CVS snapshot) does not work (i.e. suspends the process when put in the background, even when no input is required). As it turns out, Debain started using libedit as of 4.3.9 (the first version in which this problem appeared), before that they used neither libedit nor libreadline.
