Updating node value result inserting selected node.
PHP should update value, NOT inserting selected node.

This bug is located at ext/simplexml.c

static int sxe_prop_dim_write(zval *object, zval *member, zval *value, zend_bool 
elements, zend_bool attribs, xmlNodePtr *pnewnode TSRMLS_DC)

It seems the logic is broken for this case.

Test script:
$string = <<<XML
<?xml version="1.0" ?> 

$xml = simplexml_load_string($string);

$xml->root->node = "NEW VALUE";

print $xml->asXML();

Expected result:
<?xml version="1.0"?>
 <root><node>NEW VALUE</node></root></root>

Actual result:
<?xml version="1.0"?>

Oops. I swapped Expected and Actual result, but I'm sure that you get the idea.

Bogus. Forgot to ignore root node.
