Please do not submit the same bug more than once. An existing
bug report already describes this very problem. Even if you feel
that your issue is somewhat different, the resolution is likely
to be the same. Because of this, we hope you add your comments
to the existing bug instead.

Thank you for your interest in PHP.

Description:
------------
When passing a non-existing portion of an array by reference this
portion gets created even if the function does not touch the array =>
it is modified in the calling line.

It works with string indexes as well.

Reproduce code:
---------------
error_reporting(E_ALL);

$tab2 = array( );

function do_nothing ( &$var ) {
// code here doesnt matter
}

do_nothing($tab2[10]);
var_dump($tab2);



Expected result:
----------------
array(0) {
}


Actual result:
--------------
array(1) {
[10]=>
NULL
}
