When you create a class by extending mysqli or mysqli_result and add a destructor to it (to automatically call mysqli::close, for instance), it doesn't get called when the object gets out of scope.

Reproduce code:

class test extends mysqli
    function __construct() { echo "born\n"; }
    function __destruct() { echo "died\n"; }

$test = new test;


Expected result:

Actual result:
