Description: ------------ This only happens on Win32 code. When calling countChildren() on a section, when there are no children, an Object is returned, instead of a numeric 0. It works as expected when it finds any children. I am using the XML type. Casting to (int) returns 1. I need to wrap the following code in order to properly get a 0 returned: $monthNumberOfPeople = is_numeric($monthSection->countChildren()) ? $monthSection->countChildren() : 0; Reproduce code: --------------- $monthNumberOfPeople = $monthSection->countChildren();

Ok, I think I understand the problem now, sorry for the slowness. What you propose makes sense to me and seems like the right thing to do. However, I think this change would be considered a break in backwards compatiblity, which is only allowed for major version releases.
