Description:
------------
It appears that assigning variables passed by reference does not work under specific circumstances. 
For example in the test script, removing the switch statement in the `bug` function does not trigger the bug.

Having a look around recent bug fixes, this is possibly a regression introduced by https://bugs.php.net/bug.php?id=71756.

The test script only fails on php 7.0.5

Test script:
---------------
https://3v4l.org/KB4sC

Expected result:
----------------
string

Actual result:
--------------
@string@
