Status: Verified
Bug Type: Scripting Engine problem
Operating System: RH7.2
-PHP Version: 4.3.2-RC
+PHP Version: 4.3.3RC2, 5.0.0b2-dev
New Comment:

The problem can be ted with a simpler script:
<?php
class A {
var $b=1;
function test()
{
global $g;
$g =& $this->b;
}
}
$n = new A();
$g = "BAR";
$n->test();
var_dump($g);
?>

The problem itself appears to be ZE's inability to make a variable
imported using global a reference. if $GLOBALS['var_name'] is used the
script works correctly
