After checking out PHP54 from branches/PHP_5_4, running:
make test

some tests for sapi/cli are failing. These tests were OK when I tested from tags/php_5_4_0RC6

The failing tests are:

version string [sapi/cli/tests/001.phpt]
strip comments and whitespace with -w [sapi/cli/tests/007.phpt]
execute a file with -f [sapi/cli/tests/008.phpt]
using invalid combinations of cmdline options [sapi/cli/tests/009.phpt]
syntax check [sapi/cli/tests/011.phpt]
invalid arguments and error messages [sapi/cli/tests/012.phpt]
syntax highlighting [sapi/cli/tests/014.phpt]
CLI long options [sapi/cli/tests/015.phpt]

Full reports were submitted to after running the tests.

I am not seeing these failures here. Could you dig into one of them to see if you 
can figure out why it is failing for you?

Will do.

By looking at the expected and the actual outputs of sapi/cli/tests/001.phpt, looks like that var_dump(`$php -n -v`); first prints out the PHP version (the result from php -n -v) and then var_dumps a NULL, whereas it should var_dump the result from php -n -v.

Actually, all these failing tests are this kind of thing: printing the result, var_dumping NULL, instead of var_dumping the result. What's strange, is that, for example sapi/cli/tests/007.phpt, from 3 var_dumps in that test, only one does this (the 2nd), the other 2 work as expected.

Given that this works for RC6, I'm looking at commits since then, to see if anything from there is causing this.

Any hints on what should I do to check is my system affecting this somehow? I'm using the test instructions you posted on codepad some time ago.

Hello again!

I did a svn log -r {2012-01-10}:HEAD against the PHP54 branch and went through those commits.

What I've managed to do so far is to find what commit is causing the tests to fail (at least I think it's this one):

The r322743 of the code has the tests failing, while the one prior to it (r322678) has the tests passing.

Sadly my C skills are almost non-existent, so I can't promise a patch, but will continue to poke around it.

Think I narrowed it down even more. Seems to me the problem is in the new php_output_stderr function - when I comment it out, the tests pass again. I'll attach a diff to show what I did.

Yeah, looks to be the same as bug #60920

Automatic comment from SVN on behalf of mike
Log: use stderr before, stdout after php_output_startup() and sapi_module.ub_write() after php_output_activate()
