Description:
------------
The doc documents SplFileObject::__toString as being an alias for SplFileObject::current.
When calling __toString explicitly, this indeed works (and can return an array when READ_CSV is used, which seems confusing)
But when casting a SplFileObject to a string, it will return the path to the file, like for the SplFileInfo parent class.

Test script:
---------------
$tempFile = new \SplTempFileObject();
$tempFile->fwrite('foobar-');
$tempFile->rewind();

echo (string) $tempFile;
echo PHP_EOL;
echo $tempFile->__toString();

Expected result:
----------------
Result according to the doc:

foobar-
foobar-

Actual result:
--------------
php://temp
foobar-

I believe this was fixed by the fix to https://bugs.php.net/bug.php?id=64023. I cannot reproduce on PHP 5.4.9

I realise that the version listed on the bug report is 5.4.15 - however testing the repro case in http://3v4l.org/9HuIJ seems to indicate that it was fixed in 5.4.7.

Can you update the issue if you think it still is an issue.
