it seems that the implicit ob_end_flush() is called after object destructions.
uncomment any ONE of the comments gives "okay". but this is not the official trick that supported by php.

the php bug system suggest me this bug is by design in #39546 #39629 etc.

there's many register_xxx arround my php files, which install data into a global object, and the output buffer handler will inject the data into the output in the correct place. if this bug is not fixed, the only way i can do is to rewrite the object into array/functions

anyway, i have a suggested fix to change the work flow a bit:
 1. flush and pop all OBs but leave 1 top OB on shutdown
 2. destruct objects
 3. flush the last OB if there's any

no matter if this bug is gonna be fixed, there shall be a page that give explanation and work arround to this issue.

Reproduce code:
class Obj

function callback($content)
    return isset($GLOBALS['a']) ? $content : 'oops';

$a = new Obj();
//$b = $a;
echo 'okay';


Expected result:

Actual result:
