Os info: Ubuntu 15.04, Linux 4.2.0-19-generic
Php version: 7.0.5
Configure command: 	'./configure' '--enable-zip' '--enable-intl' '--with-oci8' '--disable-cgi' '--with-apxs2=/usr/local/apache/bin/apxs' '--enable-opcache' '--enable-sigchild' '--enable-mbstring' '--with-xsl' '--with-gd' '--with-config-file-scan-dir=/usr/local/apache/conf' '--with-openssl' '--with-curl' '--with-zlib' '--enable-timezonedb'
Php ini: php.ini-production, no changes

I'm in migrating process from php 5.6.9 to 7.0.5. I noticed very strange errors with oci8 + call_user_func_array functions. Test script shows how to get other bind value rather then you were supplied as a parameter. If you'll try to do some little changes you may have different results. Also I had a segfaults, but now I can't reproduce it. 

Test script:
class dbTest
    private $stmt;
    public function __construct()
        $conn = oci_connect('user', 'password', 'dbmane');
        $this->stmt = oci_parse($conn, 'select :bindValue as result from dual');
    public function runOciFunc($funcName, array $funcArgs)
        call_user_func_array("oci_$funcName", $funcArgs);
    public function bindVal(array $bind)
        foreach ($bind as $k => $v) {
            $this->runOciFunc('bind_by_name', [$this->stmt, ':bindValue', &$v]);
        return $this;
    public function execute()
        $this->runOciFunc('execute', [$this->stmt]);
        return $this;
    public function result()
(new dbTest)->bindVal(['expected value'])

Expected result:
array(1) { ["RESULT"]=> string(14) "expected value" }

Actual result:
array(1) { ["RESULT"]=> string(11) "oci_execute" }

Sorry wrong php version in description, it tested with 7.0.4

You need to make sure the memory address being bound is still available at time of OCI8 execute. However ref counting in PHP core changed a lot in PHP 7 as part of the performance work and the ref count of $v in bindVal() is different from that in PHP 5.6.

This works in PHP 7:
$v = 'expected value';
(new dbTest)->bindVal([&$v])

2sixd, yes that works. Like I said, some slight changes may result to different output. Now I'm trying to identify this bug with php 7.0.5. This behaviour were changed, but still buggy.
