This is a re-open of Bug #13968.

I can still see the same issue happening with PHP 4.3.10. Just like the previous poster (in bug #13968), I cannot reproduce this with simple code. However, the general idea is this:

class Base
   var $resource = new Resource();

   function __wakeup()
       // In a saved session, the resource lost relevance, so we reopne it:
       $this->resource = open_resource(); // <-- this corrupts Thing's another_member

class Child extends Base

class Thing
   var $member;
   var $another_member; // <-- when wakes up, this is equal to the Resource we open in Base's __wakeup.

   function Thing()
      $this->member = new Child();
      $this->another_member = 12345;

Please try using this CVS snapshot:
For Windows:

And if you can reproduce it, please come up with simple test case.

Yes, I can reproduce this with the latest snapshot.
No, despite all my attempts, I wasn't able to produce a minimized testcase.
Even if I take the session file and run it through unserialize in the same environment, I cannot reproduce this.
However, I *can* reliably reproduce this bug in my own environment.

From this, I realize that the only solution is for me to debug it myself. I serialize an object, which has a member object. If, during wakeup, I replace that member object (with assignment '=') with another variable of type Object (ANY variable, as long as its type Object), I'd be replacing some other unrelated member variable -- and the variable I'd be trying to replace will remain the same. Any hints at debugging this?
