Bug #78434 Generator yields no items after valid() call

See the example script. The inner $function generator is called twice so two zeros should be yielded from $wrapper. Yet only one is yielded if I call valid() on the Generator before using yield from.

Test script:

The correct behavior here depends on whether "yield from" is supposed to iterate from the current position of the generator, or from the start (and throw if we're not at the start). To make this more obvious, replace valid() with current() -- should the yield from repeat the value you already fetched?

Generally I would agree that it should iterate from the start, in particular because this is what yield from does for non-generator Iterators.

Of course it should. I didn't call next() so the first value was not yet "consumed".

Also as you can see in the example the behaviour is inconsistent between the first and second yield from. That's definitely not correct.

As far as I know calling Generator::rewind() is alright until next() is called for the first time. Which means that your argument whether or not should yield from call rewind() is not relevant here - the result would be the same regardless.

Sorry, I missed the different behavior for the two yield froms... something is definitely broken here.

Bump. Just ran into this again, it is really bothering me that I can't rely on Generators to work correctly. Can you please fix this?
 [2020-04-02 15:03 UTC]
It looks like the difference in behavior is because the first yield from runs with DO_INIT flag set, which prevents the initial advance.
