$x = new COM("Word.Application") crashes PHP
It crashes even without a web server (i.e. running PHP from command line).

$x = com_load("Word.Application") works fine though.

It's impossible to get a backtrace since PHP crashes when executing the new COM() line.

$x =& new COM(...) doesn't crash PHP, but the returned object is usable. I guess this is the "intended" behavior since COM objects shouldn't be passed by reference.

Reproduce code:
1. $x = new COM("Word.Application")
2. $x = com_load("Word.Application")

Expected result:
1. COM object
2. COM object

Actual result:
1. php crashes
2. COM object (works fine)
