1. exec via browser PHP 7.1 test script. (PHP work via nginx as php-cgi.exe)

Using WTServer (
PHP VC14 x64 Non Thread Safe

Test script:
#!/usr/bin/env php
	if (!defined("STDERR"))
		define("STDERR", fopen("php://stderr", "w"));

	for ($i=0; $i<256; $i++)
		fprintf(STDERR, "Missing some file\n");

	print "done.";

Expected result:
#!/usr/bin/env php

Actual result:
freeze on 227 iteration. 4k buffer overflow?

Plus if decrease count of iterations, string "#!/usr/bin/env php" sometimes output, sometimes not after each re-save the file.

Thanks for the report. I'm not sure to understand the bug - do you run the php script from bash? Or is that run under FCGI under NGINX? Do you use the official PHP builds?

I run php script from browser.
PHP work via nginx.
browser -> nginx -> php-cgi.exe

PHP was taken from VC14 x64 Non Thread Safe
