Description:
------------
When subtracting days from the next day of the week and today is the same day of the week, strtotime use the current date instead.  

Test script:
---------------
// Today is 09/06/2015

echo date('d/m/Y', strtotime('next tue'));
echo date('d/m/Y', strtotime('next tue -1 day'));


Expected result:
----------------
16/06/2015
15/06/2015

Actual result:
--------------
16/06/2015
08/06/2015

Hm, I'm not sure if that is supposed to work. Apparently 'next tue'
is simply ignored and only '-1 day' is calculated.

Anyhow, do you really mean 'next tue -1 day' instead of 'next
mon'? Both have, of course, different results on Mondays.

I used Tuesday because i saw that this happen when using the same day for the next week.

For example today is Wednesday and if i try this:
echo date('d/m/Y', strtotime('next wed -1 day'));

the output will be: 09/06/2015
The "next wed" seems to be ignored as you said.

But, if i try to do the opposite operation:
echo date('d/m/Y', strtotime('next wed +1 day'));

the output will be: 18/06/2015
This time "next wed" worked well.
