The error is very strange. I'm not able to provide a short reproducible code snippet. If I don't let my whole test suite run I can't reproduce the bug. The code is proprietary, so I can't share it. To find out the issue, you'll have to communicate with me, sorry :S

In my code there is a function getId with a type declaration (I put it in the Test Script)

When I run my Test Suite with PHPUnit I get the error seen in "Actual Result".

If I put the anything before the line with the return, the error vanishes. Even a line comment with no content is enough.

I've tried several things to find out details about the error:
 * Happens with Opcache disabled
 * Happens when run on CircleCI (PHP 7.0.4)
 * Happens when I write the function as one line.
 * Disappears if I try to log the value before returning it. "error_log(var_export($this->id, true));"
 * Disappears if I put an empty line there

Things checked:
 * Dumped the file with xxd and found no special characters
 * OpCache
 * Debugged with XDebug, found not a single step where id is not int

PHP Packages:
$ brew list | grep php70

Test script:
# Code Producing the error:

public function getId(): int
  return $this->id;

# Code NOT producing the error (and that's the only change):
public function getId(): int
  return $this->id;

Expected result:
returns the int

Actual result:
1) Tests\Functional\AppBundle\EventControllerTest::testLikeForeign
TypeError: Return value of AppBundle\Entity\User::getId() must be of the type integer, string returned

Does this still happen to you with any of the actively supported
