Description:
------------
The first child of <data>, a CDATA-section, is not recognized as such, but identified as a text object.

According to the documentation, the type should be 4 instead of 3.

works (tested, that is) on 4.3.1, 4.3.6
fails on 4.3.8, 4.3.9

Reproduce code:
---------------
$xmlString = '<?xml version="1.0"?><root><data><![CDATA[Some CData content]]></data></root>';
$xml = domxml_open_mem($xmlString);

$node = $xml->get_elements_by_tagname('data');
$cdata_section = $node[0]->child_nodes();

echo phpversion();

print_r($cdata_section[0]);


Expected result:
----------------
4.3.6

domcdata Object
(
    [type] => 4
    [content] => Some CData content
    [0] => 3
    [1] => 12561912
)


Actual result:
--------------
4.3.8 / 4.3.9

domtext Object
(
    [type] => 3
    [name] => #text
    [content] => Some CData content
    [0] => 3
    [1] => 140237488
)

technically there's is no difference between a text and 
a cdata section. CDATA is just another way to write text 
nodes. Internally it's the same (AFAIK).

We won't fix that.
