first: sry for my english (I am german)

Trying to dynamicly declarate a class in a namespace doesnt works. It doesn't searches in the current namespace, if this class is present. It just searches in the global namespace.

Reproduce code:
namespace Level1::Level2;
class Example
	public function __construct()
		echo 'works!';
$classname = 'Example';
new $classname();

Expected result:
Fatal error: Class 'Example' not found in test.php on line 11

Dynamic class references require the fully qualified class name (with the namespace in it) because at runtime there is no information about the current namespace.
