This change looks to be introduced accidentaly in HEAD, and was MFHd by me times ago. the hasProperty() is currently using the __isset magic method, this doesn't look right from a reflection perspective. It must behaves like property_exists() that doesn't uses the magic stuff.

Reproduce code:

class foo {
	function __isset($a) {
		return 1;

$x = new foo;
$ref = new ReflectionObject($x);

Expected result:

Actual result:
string(1) "b"
