Thank you for taking the time to write to us, but this is not
a bug. Please double-check the doentation available at
[url]http://www.php.net/manual/[/url] and the instructions on how to report
a bug at [url]http://bugs.php.net/how-to-report.php[/url]

That's correct. We have three types of object bound properties:
1) declared with or without default value
2) implicit declared by usage in source (for BC reasons)
3) virtual through __get() and __set()

Description:
------------
When a class definition contains any reference to a variable name that
will be later used in a __set() (or __get()) operation, the setter (or
getter) will not fire.

This variable does not have to be defined or used at all. The code must
simply exist.

In the following example code, simply comment out the
print($this->myVar); line and you will see the 'setter fired' message.

This is NOT similar to bug #24608 as the element never gets created in
this case.

Reproduce code:
---------------
class test {
function unusedFunction() {
print($this->myVar);
}
function __set($nm, $vl) {
print('setter fired');
}
}

$obj = new test();
$obj->myVar = 'some data';

Expected result:
----------------
'setter fired'


Actual result:
--------------
Nothing.
