Description:
------------
This problem occurs in both PHP 4.3.5RC3 and in PHP 5.0.0b4. The constructor function of the child class does not have the proper var's set in it from the parent class.

Reproduce code:
---------------
class parentclass {
	public $var = 'test';

	function parentclass() {
		$this->var = 'test2';
	}
}

class childclass extends parentclass {
	function childclass() {
		print $this->var;
	}
}

$obj = new parentclass;
$obj2 = new childclass;

Expected result:
----------------
Well I expected it to print "test2".

Actual result:
--------------
But instead it prints the value that the public var was initialized as "test".

Thank you for taking the time to write to us, but this is not
a bug. Please double-check the documentation available at
http://www.php.net/manual/ and the instructions on how to report
a bug at http://bugs.php.net/how-to-report.php

This is correct, PHP will not automatically call the parent constructor if you do:

$obj2 = new childclass;
