Fatal error using the 'WScript.Shell' COM when accessing the registry on WIndows XP.  Tried  5.0 RC3, 5.0, and latest  Apache/1.3.31 (Win32) PHP/5.0.2-dev with same results.

Reproduce code:
This works correctly (reading a valid registry entry)

  $shell= &new COM('WScript.Shell');

The following causes a fatal error if the registry key does not exist

  $shell= &new COM('WScript.Shell');

This used to work correctly in 4.x versions of PHP.

Expected result:
Not to get a fatal error but a NULL if a registry entery does not exist.

Actual result:
Fatal error: Uncaught exception 'com_exception' with message 'Source: WshShell.RegRead
Description: Unable to open registry key "HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Environment\TEMP11111" for reading.' in f:\web\test.php:3 Stack trace: #0 {main} thrown in f:\web\test.php on line 3
