Getting error message telling me to report this bug, so I am.

Confirmed only happens with 4.3.3; 5CVS-2003-09-06 gives the more sensible error message "Fatal error: Using $this when not in object context" on the previous line, indicating this is a ZE1 problem.

Reproduce code:
class foo {
    function bar() {

$this->x = "y";
echo foo::bar();

Expected result:
No message instructing me to file a bug report.
Possibly, an error about using $this outside a class, like PHP5 gives.

Actual result:
Warning: Problem with method call - please report this bug on line 8

Works with PHP5 -> won't fix in PHP4.
(basically any OO bugs in PHP4 gets the same treatment, if it doesn't work in PHP5, report it, otherwise, forget about it)
