new PDO('mysql:host=localhost;db=test','test','test',array());
returns NULL under Apache2 and normal object under CLI.

Reproduce code:
new PDO('mysql:host=localhost;db=test','test','test',array())
and run this under Apache2 (my version is 2.0.55)

Expected result:
to get valid object

Actual result:

I've solved this problem - MySQL extension wasn't loaded properly. But I think this behavior is strange anyway - why don't to say "cannot connect to MySQL"?

NULL is indeed wrong. If the costructor fails we have two options, return an invalid object that cannot be used besides getting the error information or we must throw an error. Ilia managed to allow delay of base constructor call which allowed to drop final. Maybe he can check whether we can get the above behavior using the error mode.

Actual result is not NULL, when instantiation of the PDO class 
happens an exception is thrown.
