1. Run shmop_open with $key=0 and $flags="n" multiple times.
2. Wonder about a missing warning when using the same key for creation.
3. Check the output of ipcs -m. There should show up multiple segments now.

For other integers <> 0 shmop_open works as expected

Test script:

$res = shmop_open(0,"n",0600,1024);
$res = shmop_open(0,"n",0600,1024);


Expected result:
At least a warning should be thrown w/o creating another segment.

Warning: shmop_open(): unable to attach or create shared memory segment in php shell code on line 1

For segments that were opened via $key=0 it is additionally not possible to attach to them.

This snippet

additionally fails with
