using apache 1.3.0 on a linux 2.0.35 libc5 setup.
(apache configure line)
./configure --prefix=/drives/web/apache_1.3.0 \
                --activate-module=src/modules/extra/mod_auth_mysql.o \
                --activate-module=src/modules/extra/mod_log_mysql.o \
                --activate-module=src/modules/php3/libphp3.a \
                --activate-module=src/modules/standard/mod_rewrite.o \

the following script gives un-expected results:

 class simple {
        var $somevar,$differvar;
        function init() {
          echo "this->somevar: ",$this->$somevar,"<BR>";
          echo "this->somevar: ",$this->$somevar,"<BR>";
          echo "this->differvar: ",$this->$differvar,"<BR>";

$tester =new simple;

<B>expected results:</B>
this->somevar: 1
this->somevar: 1
this->differvar: 2

<B>results obtained:</B>
this->somevar: 1
this->somevar: 2
this->differvar: 2

hashing problem ?
regex problem ?

c. none of the above - script problem

I think you could have figured that this was way too basic
to be a bug :)

Turn on error reporting all the way up by calling
or, if you have the old 3.00,
and I'm sure you'll figure where you were wrong.

Properties are not referenced like this:
but like this

$foo->$bar has a totally different meaning.
