When i make a for in a array associative, but using some wrong key like numeric, this crash the system.
Please see the code 

Reproduce code:
protected function getArray() {
    $days = array();
    for ($i = 31; $i > 0; $i--) {
        $day  = mktime (0, 0, 0, date("m")  , date("d")-$i, date("Y"));
        if (date('w', $day) != 0 && date('w', $day) != 6 ){
            $days[] = date('d/m/Y', $day);
    $days = array_flip($days);
    for ($i = 0; $i < count($days); $i++) {
//Here is the problem, becouse insted of use a correct key, i use a number. In this point the system crash.
        $days[$i] = 0;
    return $days;

Sorry, but your problem does not imply a bug in PHP itself.  For a
list of more appropriate places to ask for help using PHP, please
visit as this bug system is not the
appropriate forum for asking support questions.  Due to the volume
of reports we can not explain in detail here why your report is not
a bug.  The support channels will be able to provide an explanation
for you.

Thank you for your interest in PHP.

You create an endless loop.
