Description:
------------
If flush() is called, a subsequent call to headers_sent() with $filename and $linenumber specified does not bind the actual file name and line number of the line where flush() appeared. Instead the values are empty string and 0, respectively.

Test script:
---------------
<?

1 = 1;

flush();

if ( headers_sent( $file, $line) ) {
    echo "Headers sent at $file: $line<br>";
}

echo "Some text here.<br>";

if ( headers_sent( $file, $line) ) {
    echo "Headers sent at $file: $line<br>";
}


Expected result:
----------------
Headers sent at '/var/www/flush_test.php', line 5.
Some text here.
Headers sent at '/var/www/flush_test.php', line 8.

Actual result:
--------------
Headers sent at '', line 0.
Some text here.
Headers sent at '/var/www/flush_test.php', line 8.

Please try using this snapshot:

  http://snaps.php.net/php5.3-latest.tar.gz
 
For Windows:

  http://windows.php.net/snapshots/

headers_sent() after flush() returns FALSE for me.

Same bug for me on Windows 7 for PHP 5.3.10 (can't see a more recent version on 
Windows snapshot site, only trunk with [0B])


Test script:
---------------
<?php

error_reporting(E_ALL);
ini_set('display_errors', 1);

header('Content-Type: text/plain');
flush();

echo phpversion(), "\n";

$file = 'a';
$line = 'b';
if (headers_sent($file, $line)) {
  var_dump($file, $line);
}

header('X-Foo: Bar');


Expected result:
----------------
5.3.10
string(35) "D:\htdocs\test\php\headers_sent.php"
int(6) // or 7 for line 7 "flush();"

Warning: Cannot modify header information - headers already sent in 
D:\htdocs\test\php\headers_sent.php on line 17


Actual result:
--------------
5.3.10
string(0) ""
int(0)

Warning: Cannot modify header information - headers already sent in 
D:\htdocs\test\php\headers_sent.php on line 17
