replacing an array with a multidimensional array causes a variable overlap

Reproduce code:
	$show[0] = "james";
        // php must unset($show[0]);
	$show[0][1] = "kirk";
        foreach($show as $bb => $aa)
            echo $bb . " -- " . $aa;

Expected result:
    [0] => Array
            [1] => kirk


0 -- Array

Actual result:
    [0] => jkmes

0 -- jkmes
