When attempting to cast an object to an int, it remains untouched.  No warnings or errors are displayed.  The results are the same for (int), intval(), and settype().  float, bool, string, and array all seem to work correctly.  I get the same results in both 5.0.3 and 5.1.0b3.  In 4.3.11, an object can be cast to int.

Reproduce code:

class Foo {
var $bar = "bat";

$foo = new Foo;

$bar = (int)$foo;

$baz = (float)$foo;


Expected result:
object(Foo)#1 (1) {
  string(3) "bat"

Actual result:
object(Foo)#1 (1) {
  string(3) "bat"
object(Foo)#1 (1) {
  string(3) "bat"

Notice: Object of class Foo could not be converted to double in /home/crywolf/Test/cast_object.php on line 14

Dmitry, I guess we need to return at least objects index in  this case.
Or maybe use the same way we use when compatibility_mode is on.
What do you think?

Fixed in CVS HEAD.
