Error messages are printed when parsing invalid XML document despite of the fact that they should be (and are) converted to exceptions.

Reproduce code:

function err2exc($errno, $errstr, $errfile, $errline) {
    throw new Exception($errstr);

$xml = '<?xml version="1.0"?>

    <bbb>ddddd < </bbb>


set_error_handler('err2exc', E_ALL);

try {
    $doc = DOMDocument::loadXML($xml);
} catch (Exception $e) {
    echo "Exception caught\n";


Expected result:
Exception caught
string(73) "DOMDocument::loadXML(): StartTag: invalid element name in Entity, line: 4"

Actual result:
Warning: DOMDocument::loadXML(): expected '>' in Entity, line: 7 in /tmp/1.php on line 26
Exception caught
string(73) "DOMDocument::loadXML(): StartTag: invalid element name in Entity, line: 4"
