Confirmed for COM objects, but not for objects in general, e.g.

  var_dump((bool) new StdClass); // => bool(true)
  var_dump((bool) new ArrayObject([])); // => bool(true)

Can you test to confirm if this differs between 32 bit and 64 bit builds of PHP 7.0.0 Alpha 2 and if possible if it happens on non Windows on 7.0.0 Alpha 2?

If you don't have the chance to, then its fine and simply put the ticket back to "Open", thanks

It happens also with x86 builds, but as I said above, it doesn't
happen for general objects, but only for COM objects (and maybe
some others).

cmb, it seems like it was a port issue, should be fixed now
