Description:
------------
The character(8-bit) range of value does not roll back to the corresponding minimum value, once the value reaches beyond the range of a char(8-bit) that it can hold, when Unicode is ON.


Reproduce code:
---------------
--TEST--
--FILE--
<?php
var_dump( decbin( ord(chr(255)) ) );
var_dump( decbin( ord(chr(256)) ) );
var_dump( decbin( ord(chr(257)) ) );
?>
--EXPECTF--


Expected result:
----------------
unicode(8) "11111111"
unicode(1) "0"
unicode(1) "1"

Actual result:
--------------
unicode(8) "11111111"
unicode(9) "100000000"
unicode(9) "100000001"

Thank you for your bug report.

In unicode, characters and bytes do not map one-on-one. That means that the codepoint for a character may be bigger than 256. The ord() function returns the numerical value for the codepoint, which may be bigger than 256. It should not wrap around as you describe.
