Description:
------------
the bindParam($param, $var) PDO function does not require the colon(:) for the param.



Test script:
---------------
$stmt = $dbh->prepare("INSERT INTO foo VALUES (:email, :password)");
$stmt->bindParam('email', $_POST['email']); //this works, but shouldn't
$stmt->bindParam('password', $_POST['password']); //this works, but shouldn't




Expected result:
----------------
obviously the first param of bindParam() should require the colon(:) 

Actual result:
--------------
the first param of bindParam() does not require the colon(:)
