When creating an object which has as property an object of the same class - this creates an infinite loop -, the page doesn't display (that's normal) but no error is raised.

Reproduce code:
class A {
 private $B;

 public function __construct() {
  $this->B = new A();

Expected result:
PHP should bug and raise an error.

Actual result:
Nothing. Blank page and no error raised.

This is the "expected" behaviour. it will crash in 5_2 and will reach the memory limit in 5_3 and print

Fatal error: Allowed memory size of %d bytes exhausted at..
