Open a tcp connection using stream_socket_client, spawn a child process 
with pcntl_fork, encrypt the stream in the child, fetch data from the 
stream.  In the parent wait for the child to finish and then fetch data 
out of the stream; it is not decrypted.

Reproduce code:

$s = stream_socket_client("tcp://", $errno, $errstr, 5, STREAM_CLIENT_CONNECT);

if (!pcntl_fork()) {
	if (stream_socket_enable_crypto($s, TRUE, STREAM_CRYPTO_METHOD_SSLv23_CLIENT)) {
		print "child: " . fgets($s);

print "parent: " . fgets($s) . "\n";


Expected result:
child: 220 ESMTP
parent: 220 ESMTP

Actual result:
child: 220 ESMTP
parent:  ??1)?????cV^~?????

Exactly why would it be? You forked and called the crypto enabling, you 
didn't enable it for the parent.

I assumed the encryption was a feature of the socket and not the 
process. Thanks for the clarification.
