When zend.ze1_compatibility_mode is On, object copying is not compliant to PHP4. Namely, objects are not deep-copied on assignment. This may cause substantial problems to legacy applications that rely on the compatibility mode.

Reproduce code:
$a->y->z = 0;
$b = $a;      // should perform deep copy of $a
$b->y->z = 1; // hence this should have no effect on $a

Expected result:
object(stdClass)#1 (1) {
  object(stdClass)#2 (1) {
    int(0) // <--

Actual result:
object(stdClass)#1 (1) {
  object(stdClass)#2 (1) {
    int(1) // because $a->y and $b->y are still one object after the assignment

Still the same. Only the top-level object is cloned.

Dmitry, can you check this one out too? (I thought something like this was fixed already but apparently not)

Fixed in CVS HEAD and PHP_5_0.
