Hey. I encountered a weird inconsistency in foreach() behavior over plain arrays. See the code below. In certain specific cases loop will skip second iteration with no apparent reason.

It reproduces (at least) on 7.2.7-7.2.9 on both windows and linux, but NOT on 7.1.21 or below.

Test script:
$arr = [1 => 1, 3 => 3];           // [1 => 1, 2 => 3] will print both keys
foreach($arr as $key => &$val) {   // without & will print both keys
    echo "See key {$key}\n";
    $arr[0] = 0;                   // without this line will print both keys

Expected result:
See key 1
See key 3

Actual result:
See key 1

Open VS Code.
Open the “Extensions” sidebar (you can use “Ctrl+Shift+X”).
Click on the ellipsis icon in the top right corner of the menu.
Select “Install from VSIX…”
VS Code will open a document browser. ...
VS Code will now begin the installation process of the extension.

Typically, a mix is about 10 to 15 percent cement, 60 to 75 percent aggregate and 15 to 20 percent water. Entrained air in many concrete mixes may also take up another 5 to 8 percent.
