Summary0001879: Bundled unit tests miss to load xdebug in debugged child process
DescriptionThe bundled unit tests use a class tests/debugger/dbgp/dbgpclient.php to run PHP child processes under the debugger. That class starts PHP using proc_open and sets a few xdebug ini parameters for it, but it misses to actually load the xdebug extension.

The Makefile only loads xdebug in the scripts started via run-tests.php, but this doesn't get inherited to the next layer of child processes.

For an environment with dynamically loaded xdebug, the following fix looks appropriate:

Steps To ReproduceBuild PHP with xdebug dynamically loadable and then run "make test". Nearly all tests from tests/debugger will FAIL.

FWIW, "make test" is not something I support or use. It comes from PHP's extension building system, but I need something more so instead use "php run-xdebug-tests.php".

Your "patch" also does not look like something I can merge, as my set-up has "" in php.ini, and loading the extension twice, would make the tests fail.

The README.rst for testing says:

The test framework requires that the PHP binary on the path has Xdebug loaded,
with remote debugging enabled through `xdebug.remote_enable=1`. It is possible
to skip remote debugging tests by exporting the `SKIP_DBGP_TESTS=1` environment

Would it be possible, that you give an indication how you run your provided unit tests? You mentioned "php run-xdebug-tests.php"? Should it work just like that, or do you have to set environment variables, give arguments, provide a specific ini file or similar?

Oups, sorry, just saw you mentioned in another ticket. Will have a look there. Thanks.
