when subclassing SplFileObject and opening it via SplFileInfo->openFile() initialized array properties of the subclass of SplFileInfo are changing to null, while strings are fine.

Test script:
class Foo extends SplFileObject
        public $bar = 'baz';
        public $bam = array();
	function __construct($file)
		// do stuff
$fileInfo = new SplFileInfo('php://temp');
$file = $fileInfo->openFile('r');

print var_dump($file->bar); // is baz
print var_dump($file->bam); // is null or UNKNOWN:0

Expected result:
I expected var_dump($file->bam) to print an empty array

Actual result:
null or UNKNOWN:0
