Stacking 2 error handlers is broken. With object methods only the first error handler is invoked, with functions I even get a PHP crash.

Reproduce code:
-------------------------- Object methods -----------------------


class ErrorHandling

    public function errorHandler1( $errno, $errstr )
        echo "Caught on first level: '$errstr'\n";
        return true;

    public function errorHandler2( $errno, $errstr )
        echo "Caught on second level: '$errstr'\n";
        return true;

$err = new ErrorHandling();

set_error_handler( array( $err, 'errorHandler1' ) );
set_error_handler( array( $err, 'errorHandler2' ) );

trigger_error( 'Foo', E_USER_WARNING );


-------------------------- Functions -----------------------


function errorHandler1( $errno, $errstr )
    echo "Caught on first level: '$errstr'\n";
    return true;

function errorHandler2( $errno, $errstr )
    echo "Caught on second level: '$errstr'\n";
    return true;

set_error_handler( 'errorHandler1' );
set_error_handler( 'errorHandler2' );

trigger_error( 'Foo', E_USER_WARNING );


Expected result:
-------------------------- Object methods ----------------------- Caught on second level: 'Foo'
-------------------------- Functions -----------------------
Caught on second level: 'Foo'

Actual result:
-------------------------- Object methods ----------------------- 
Caught on first level: 'Foo'
-------------------------- Functions -----------------------
Caught on first level: 'Foo'

Here is one thing that has been more clear in the other, duplicate and now closed - bug entry (#46338). The first code sample with object methods does not only miss out on the second error handler, it also segfaults *on shutdown* of the PHP process:

The problem persists with PHP 5.3.0alpha3-dev (cli) (built: Oct 21 2008 22:10:26).

Upgrading to critical, as it is a crash and clear breakage of functionality.
