Used php-gtk: trunk at 2011-12-11

The provided script could be parametrized with the defines in the first lines.
I provide a version which shows the bug (define('SHOW_BUG', true)), another one, which avoids the bug (define('SHOW_BUG', false)) and another one, which presents a workaround (define('USE_WORKAROUND', true)).

The bug occurs when one uses menu entries with mnemonics in their names in conjunction with a circular reference in classes using php-gtk.
the bug doesn't occur if either the circular reference is resolved manually or if there isn't any menu entry with a mnemonic in its name.

Test script:
a minimal script which reproduces the bug is located at

Expected result:
When I close the window, the script should terminate normally.

Actual result:
When I close the window, the script doesn't terminate but leaves the gtk main loop.

Thank you for your interest in PHP.

I can't reproduce this with the current code from

with PHP 5.3 or 5.4

1. are you using a distribution build of PHP? ubuntu puts patches on PHP source
2. does this still occur with the newer version of php-gtk code?
3. what version of the gtk libraries are you using?
