The bug does not just affect interactive sessions but normal CLI operations as well.  Try put the following code in a file:

<?php

for($i = 0; ; ++$i) {
	echo $i."\n";
	sleep(1);
}

?>

Then run it at the command prompt:

c:\>php loop.php

After running for about 60 seconds, the following error occurs:

Fatal error: Maximum execution time of 60 seconds exceeded in C:\temp\loop.php on line 6

Sorry the command in my previous comment should be this:
 
C:\temp>php loop.php

Thank you for taking the time to write to us, but this is not
a bug. Please double-check the documentation available at
http://www.php.net/manual/ and the instructions on how to report
a bug at http://bugs.php.net/how-to-report.php

To chang execution time limit either use set_time_limit() 
function or run CLI php with -d max_execution_time=0 flag

F:\Temp\CVSProjects\ezcomponents\trunk>php -d max_execution_time=0 -a
Interactive mode enabled

<?php
sleep(4);
echo $a;'

Fatal error: Maximum execution time of 30 seconds exceeded in F:\Temp\CVSProjects\ezcomponents\trunk\- on line 3

It IS a bug.  I've double-checked the documentation:

http://www.php.net/manual/en/features.commandline.php

It says the default value of max_execution_time is 0 for the CLI version.

What's defined for max_execution_time in your php.ini
 [2006-05-18 13:42 UTC] mlee at kanhan dot com
It's 30 seconds in my php.ini, but the error I get is this:

"Fatal error: Maximum execution time of 60 seconds exceeded"

Anyway, I thought the documentation is quite clear about the fact max_execution_time is one of the overridden php.ini directives for the CLI executable and that the default value is 0 (infinite).

it's a bug. I run php 5.1.4 over Windows XP, i have max_execution_time = 240 in my php.ini, set_time_limit(0) in my php script and i get "Maximum execution time of 60 seconds exceeded".
