on linux (slackware) the __destruct method seems to be called twice, even before.  On windows32 this behaviour is not seen.  Perhaps I misunderstand the role of __destruct, but that would not explain why the behaviour differs between platforms.

Reproduce code:
$Test = new Test();
echo $Test->strtolower("foo bar") . "<br />";

class Test {

    	public function __construct() {

	public function __call($function, $arguments) {
		return call_user_func_array($function, $arguments);

	public function __destruct() {
		echo "here i am<br />";


Expected result:
foo bar
here i am

Actual result:
here i am
foo bar
here i am

I get the same result when run from command line as I do within the web server.

What else can I do or provide to help recreate this "bug"?  I have worked around the issue in my code but would still like to do what I can to get to the bottom of this very unusual behaviour.

Please try using this CVS snapshot:
For Windows (zip):

For Windows (installer):

Make sure you don't have any extensions which might modify PHPs behaviour (like Zend Optimizer, Xdebug etc).
