When using overloaded Objects in Overloaded Object, then the __set method of the first object is called instead of the last Object in chain.

Reproduce code:
class TestClass {
    private $_p = array();
    public function __get($propName){
        return $this->_p[$propName];    
    public function __set($propName, $propValue){
        $this->_p[$propName] = $value;

$a = new TestClass();
$a->TestVar = 'test';
print $a->testVar;  //--> 'test'

$a->testVar = new TestClass();
$a->testVar->testVar = 'test2'; // __set of $a->testVar called instead of getter of $a->testVar and setter of $a->testVar->testVar

Expected result:
I think I is better to call the __get method of the first objects and than the __set method of the last one in chain.

Actual result:
<br />
<b>Fatal error</b>:  Cannot access undefined property for object with overloaded property access in <b>xxxx</b> on line <b>xxxx</b><br />

see bug #28444

This is just another test case.

Please correct this odd behavior.

Please do not submit the same bug more than once. An existing
bug report already describes this very problem. Even if you feel
that your issue is somewhat different, the resolution is likely
to be the same. 

Thank you for your interest in PHP.

Please add your information to bug #28444 then, closing this one as a "submitted twice" bug.
