"After the ttl has passed, the stored variable will be expunged from the cache (on the next request)" - fine, i don't care when it get purged phyiscally but i care when it lives forever in CLI mode

the code below was intended to run within our cli-autotests but since there are no requests "apc.enable_cli = 1" is completly unuseable in a long running script because you get stale data forever

i guess the check is done against $_SERVER['REQUEST_TIME'] which don't change and is fine in webserver-mode to save expensive time() calls but not in CLI mode

 apcu_store('shm_ttl_test', 'TTL TEST', 1);
 $cache_read = apcu_fetch('shm_ttl_test', $success);
 if($success !== true || $cache_read !== 'TTL TEST')
  trigger_error('unexpected shm-read');
  $return_value = 0;
 $cache_read = apcu_fetch('shm_ttl_test');
 $cache_read = apcu_fetch('shm_ttl_test');
  trigger_error("unexpected shm-read - value should have expired $cache_read");
  $return_value = 0;

Did you set apc.use_request_time=0?

no - but "Use the SAPI request start time for TTL" should not matter when apcu_store() set a explicit TTL

the snippet from the report is part of a large cli-autotest-suite which should not behave that way depending on a ini-setting you probably have no control of
