Description:
------------
Creating a new instance of the same class in a class destructor which causes infinite recursion will cause PHP to crash, instead of throwing a memory_limit error.

Dmitry told me to report this so it wouldn't be forgotten.

Reproduce code:
---------------
<?php
	class Crash
	{
		public function __destruct()
		{
			new self;
		}
	}

	new Crash;
?>

Expected result:
----------------
memory_limit error

Actual result:
--------------
Crash

I've discovered one more crash and reported here of the same type:

Heres another one with __call():
<?php
	class Test
	{
		public function __call($call, Array $args)
		{
			call_user_func_array(Array($this, $call), $args);
		}
	}

	$test = new Test;
	$test->crash();
?>

This one is a little odd, however I get a memory_limit error but straight after it crashes:
<?php
	start:
	{
		$a = function($b) use($a)
		{
			$a();
		};
	}

	goto start;
?>
