line 520:
    if (needle->type == IS_STRING) {
        if (strlen(needle->value.str.val)==0) {
            php3_error(E_WARNING,"Empty delimiter");
        found = strstr(haystack->value.str.val, needle->value.str.val);

stig told me, that php strings should be binary safe, i believe that the strlen in the strpos-function is not.

i believe it sould read:

if (needle->value.str.lenl==0) {

strpos() as it is right now is not binary safe, and
that check is intentional, to protect the binary
unsafe implementation from receiving unexpected
arguments (and thus crash).
