When a user function has some arguments which pass by reference, and use call_user_func_array to call the function, I find a bug.

In PHP 5.2 the code doesn't have any warning, But in PHP 5.3 snap I get a warning.

Reproduce code:
function test(&$arg){
	echo $arg;
$arg = 'OK<br>';
$arg_array1 = array(&$arg);
$arg_array2 = array($arg);
call_user_func_array('test', $arg_array1); // OK
call_user_func_array('test', $arg_array2); // get Warning

Expected result:

Actual result:

Warning: Parameter 1 to test() expected to be a reference, value given in D:\DevWeb.bak\UserDir\test\index.php on line 9

Please do not submit the same bug more than once. An existing
bug report already describes this very problem. Even if you feel
that your issue is somewhat different, the resolution is likely
to be the same. 

Thank you for your interest in PHP.

Why is this a warning?


Sorry for the caps, but I really mean it. Please make this at least an exception or fatal error until it is finally fixed.
