Summary0001799: Inconsistent output of branch/path data when running under Opcache

When running under Opcache, the first run returns a full set of data. Subsequent runs do not.

Specifically in the attached testcase, there are 2 entries in the function data on the first call "SomeClass->getItems" and "{main}". In the second/third/etc invocations the only entry is for "{main}"

Steps To Reproduce

With opcache.enable=1, opcache.enable_cli=1


class SomeClass
public function getItems()
return 'foo';


Test script (please run twice)
require_once 'SomeClass.php';
$class = new SomeClass();


Additional Information

This minimal testcase does not include a call to the method, but this reproduces for me even if you do

I have now finally sat down to have a good look at this, as well as some
other issues. In order to fix this, I had to split the analysing part
(scanning opcodes) and collecting data during execution, into two separate
data structures. This work is part of the improve-code-coverage
<> branch.

The good news is that this fixes the problem, and several related parts.

The bad news is that this makes code coverage twice as slow.

This is likely because there are now more data structures, and hence memory
allocations and frees are involved, but I've not been able to pinpoint the
real cause, nor have I come up with some plan to address this new slow down.

I therefore don't want to merge this branch yet, and I'm moving the target
for this Xdebug 3.2. But, please try out the new branch, as it's possible
that there are still some pending issues.
