When adding a subelement of the xml object to an array, it becomes an object again? "echo" doesn't return an object ...

Reproduce code:
$xml = simplexml_load_string($this->xml);

foreach($xml->LISTENERS->LISTENER as $listener) {
echo $listener->HOSTNAME; // Last element in tree
$hosts[] = $listener->HOSTNAME;

Expected result:
     [0] =>

Actual result:
     [0] => SimpleXMLElement Object(
          [0] =>

use $hosts[] = (string) $listener->HOSTNAME;

$listener->HOSTNAME is an object, echo just automatically 
calls the internal __toString()
