xmlrpc_encode_request(666, array()) brings apache and php down in flames.

I know that a user would better not use this, but instead
xmlrpc_encode_request('666', array()), but
- the xmlrpc spec allows method names to be made of numbers only
- php is weakly typed
- a php error msg would be better than a php crash anyway

BTW: the bug is on line 674 of xmlrpc-epi.php.c (as of 4.4.3), where the zval string value is used without proper checking for its type first. Afaict a cast to string before using the value would fix it.

DOH, I was offline this week while doing some testing of the xmlrpc extension. Just peeked into CVS and found out that the bug has already been fixed by Antony - but without an entry in the 444/514 changelog...
