After your asked me to try an other bug with PHP 5.1.0, i tryed to run my unit tests on it.
All passes, except the following. I don't know if it's a new PHP 5.1.0 feature, but i don't think that this behaviour is really useful and it can be very confusing too.

PHP version : php5-200410111030

Reproduce code:

function haricow($a = 'one') {
	$a = 'two';


Expected result:
string(3) "one"
string(3) "one"

Actual result:
string(3) "one"
string(3) "two"

Still reproducible with 5.1-dev.

Dmitry, could you have a look at it?
IMO it should be similar to recently fixed __set/__get bug.

Fixed in CVS HEAD.
