Description:
------------
max_input_vars doesn't filter variables when mbstring.encoding_translation = On

--

mbstring.encoding_translation = On
max_input_vars = 2

Test script:
---------------
<html>
<body>
<form action="" method="post">
<input type="hidden" name="value01" value="test01">
<input type="hidden" name="value02" value="test02">
<input type="hidden" name="value03" value="test03">
<input type="hidden" name="value04" value="test04">
<input type="submit" value="submit">
</form>
<?php
var_dump($_POST);
?>
</body>
</html>

Expected result:
----------------
Warning: Unknown: Input variables exceeded 2. To increase the limit change 
max_input_vars in php.ini. in Unknown on line 0

array(2) { ["value01"]=> string(6) "test01" ["value02"]=> string(6) "test02" }

Actual result:
--------------
array(4) { ["value01"]=> string(6) "test01" ["value02"]=> string(6) "test02" 
["value03"]=> string(6) "test03" ["value04"]=> string(6) "test04" }
