xdebug's idekey is somewhat set to the user php-fpm is running under.
i.e. if php-fpm is set to run under user nobody xdebug.idekey becomes nobody, if running under www-data then it becomes www-data.

The xdebug.idekey is set to default in xdebug.ini
root@mvubdevel:/etc/php5# grep -R idekey *

Running phpinfo() in browser it outputs that the local setting for xdebug.idekey is www-data, which is the user php-fpm is running under. To confirm that I've set up php-fpm to run under user nobody and local setting for xdebug.idekey became nobody

Trying to provide more info I've found out that running the following results in the same problem.. 
root@mvubdevel:~# php -r 'phpinfo();' | grep idekey
xdebug.idekey => root => default

So it seems that the problem might be in xdebug itself. I'm taking this to xdebug tracker sorry for bothering you.

Sorry, but your problem does not imply a bug in PHP itself.  For a
list of more appropriate places to ask for help using PHP, please
visit as this bug system is not the
appropriate forum for asking support questions.  Due to the volume
of reports we can not explain in detail here why your report is not
a bug.  The support channels will be able to provide an explanation
for you.

Thank you for your interest in PHP.
