a parent class has a __call
a sub class inherit from the parent call parent::method
whill cause undifined method error.

Reproduce code:

   public function __call($m, $a)
       echo "Method $m called:\n";

class test2 extends test
   public function setX()
$test2 = new test2();
$test2 -> setX('name');
