The use of brackets as to access a single character from a string is deprecated.

Use curly braces instead and you will experience the expected behavior.

$foo    = 'bar';
$foo{2} = 't';
echo $foo;

Suppose a string $t:
one can access(read) all single characters of $t by reading elements $t[0] .. $t[n]
Setting $t[0] however fails, setting $t[1] .. $t[n] succeeds.
Looks like when setting element [0] that $t gets converted to array type, and after 
setting $t[0] the values $t[1]..$t[n] are simply lost.

why not this behaviour with other indexes as well, only with item[0] ? - that's not
