Package: php5-common
Version: 5.2.6.dfsg.1-1+lenny12
Severity: normal

This bug was introduced in 5.2.6.dfsg.1-1+lenny12
When using var_export on an object, its members will be output even when 
requesting result to be returned.

How to reproduce:
>$ cat test.php
<?php #coding: utf-8

class MyClass {

    private $value;

$a = array('foo' => 'bar',
           'fail' => new MyClass);

var_export($a, true);
echo ".\n";

Expected result:
>$ php test.php 

Actual result:
>$ php test.php 
 'value' => .
