Similar to bug #24343, APCIterator fails when working with a 
large user cache.

Our user cache is currently 100663 (858.4 MBytes), and when we 
try to get some keys and loop over them, it seems that 
APCIterator fails when calling current().

This problem makes APC unsuitable for working with a large 
user cache.

Reproduce code:
$apcCache = new \APCIterator('user', '`^example-search`', APC_ITER_KEY, 100, APC_LIST_ACTIVE);

var_dump($apcCache->getTotalCount(), $apcCache->current());

Expected result:
int 2
  'key' => string 'example-search-201213' (length=26)

Actual result:
int 2
bool false

I believe this may have also prevented stale entries in the 
user cache from being deleted by APC.

I can reproduce this issue using the following example code:

//to fill apc cache (~200MB):
for($i=0;$i<50000;$i++) {
    $value = str_repeat(md5(microtime()), 100);
    apc_store('test-niko-asdfasdfasdfkjasdflkasjdfasf'.$i, $value);

//then later (usually after a few minutes) this won't work correctly:
$it = new ApcIterator('user', '#^test-niko-asdfasdfasdfkjasdflkasjdfasf#');
var_dump($it->getTotalCount()); //returns 50000
var_dump($it->current()); //returns false

Looks like this bug isn't reproduceable anymore with PHP 5.4 and current APC 
trunk. Could you test it there please?

This test still fails for me with APC-3.1.13 compiled against php-5.4.13 (on RHEL 5.7, 64bit):

Using php-5.3.21 on the same system is clean.
