[php-maint] Bug#419250: php5-cli: No prompt; commands are just echoed instead of executed

Package: php5-cli
Version: 5.2.0-10.1~highlightbg
Severity: important

Hash: SHA1

If I start php5 in interactive mode (-a switch), then I get no prompt. Even
worse, entered code is not executed but just echoed if I stop via ^D. If I
do the same on a remote system (Suse) over SSH, then I get the "php> " prompt
and code gets executed directly.

Simple example:

> $ php5 -a
> Interactive mode enabled
> echo "Hello world!";

Pressing Enter after the command just results in nothing; the cursor just moves
to the next line.
