Its possible to create an instance of an interface
PHP Version: 5.0.0RC3RC2

Reproduce code:
	class foo {
		public $member = 'value';
	session_start( );
	$_SESSION['foo'] = new foo;
<a href="php5-2.php">next</a>

	interface foo {
	function __autoload( $name ) {
		var_dump( '__autoload(): '.$name );
	session_start( );
	var_dump( $_SESSION );

Expected result:
the following should occur:
- call __autoload()
- if class foo isnt available: display error: Cannot instantiate interface foo at sesstion_start() or something

Actual result:
array(1) {
  object(foo)#1 (1) {
    string(5) "value"
