I have some problems with set_error_handler as in the following code:

class Error
    function Error()
        set_error_handler(array($this, 'handleError'));

    function handleError($type, $desc)
        print 'Error ' . $type . ' : ' . $desc . '<br>';

function passtru($type, $desc)
    $GLOBALS['eh']->handleError($type, $desc);
$eh =& new Error();
// *** it will work if use the following line
// set_error_handler('passtru');

print $undefined;
trigger_error('Error triggered', E_USER_ERROR);

It seems that set_error_handler accepts an object/method tuple
but does not call it.

PHP 4.3.1 as CGI (4.3.0 also has this problem)
Windows 98SE
Apache 1.3.27 (Win32)
