 [2004-10-27 14:19 UTC] jj at archit dot uni-karlsruhe dot de
When trying to call a static method from within another 
static method in the same class, PHP fails and prints 
"Problem with method call - please report this bug". 
However, in a couple of other methods, this does work. I 
have no clue, why it doesn't work in this particular 
function, though. 

Reproduce code:
function _getAuthType( ) {
if (  strstr( $_POST["username"], "tmp_" ) || 
(isset( $_SESSION["wahl"] ) && strstr( $_SESSION["wahl"] -> username, "tmp_" ) ) ) {
return "DB";
} else {
return "LDAP";
} /* end of getAuthType */
function getAuthOpts( ) {
$this -> authOpts = array( "DB"  => array("dsn" => DB_DRIVER."://".STUD_DB_USER.":".STUD_DB_PASS."@".STUD_DB_HOST."/".STUD_DB_NAME,
"cryptType"=> "none",
"table" => "studis",
"usernamecol" => "login",
"passwordcol" => "matrikelnr" ),
"LDAP" => array( 
"host"=> "ldaps://<host>", 
"port"=> 636,
"basedn"=> "<dn>",
"userattr"=> "uid" )
$authType = WahlApplication::_getAuthType( );
return $this -> authOpts[ $authType ];

Expected result:
$authType should contain a string - either "DB" or "LDAP" 

Actual result:
Warning: Problem with method call - please report this bug 
in /home/www/arch/studwahl-test/inc/base_classes.php on 
line 76 
 Fatal error: Call to a member function on a non-object 
in /home/www/arch/studwahl-test/inc/base_classes.php on 
line 88

Thank you for this bug report. To properly diagnose the problem, we
need a short but complete example script to be able to reproduce
this bug ourselves. 

A proper reproducing script starts with <?php and ends with ?>,
is max. 10-20 lines long and does not require any external 
resources such as databases, etc.

If possible, make the script source available online and provide
an URL to it here. Try avoid embedding huge scripts into the report.
