Issue here is not whether it can be fixed, anything can be fixed. Issue here is why in the world they have changed things in a such way to break the old code?! Was it necessary? I don't think so... I understand the need to re-factor, and making some old stuff obsolete along the way, of course, but it's not the case here. It's just that someone wasn't really playing attention to this. And this type of negligence to the details is really killing php as language. If after 10+ years in php I need to re-read the manual every now and then to make sure if the things are still working like the last time, it's just crazy..
