The bug appears if I'm using any method calls with & 
(and only with &, I read the other bug reports !!!!!!) 
to assign the result to a variable within the 
if an Exception is thrown after that within the 
constructor, the destructor is called, although no 
object was instantiated.

Reproduce code:
	class test1 {
		private $test;
		function __construct() {
			$this->test =& test1::staticMethod();
			throw new Exception();
		static function staticMethod() {
			return true;
		function __destruct() {
			print 'DESTRUCTOR';
	$test = new test1();

Expected result:
I Expected to see no output of my little listing itself, 
only the error messages.

Actual result:
After the exception was printed out in the output, 
DESTRUCTOR appeared.
