Description:
------------
Whitespace after object separator -> may cause failure of parser.

(it is fixed in PHP 5.3)

BTW: is '->' called object separator, or what is the right name?

Reproduce code:
---------------
class Foo { }

$foo = new Foo;

$foo->class = 10; // OK
$foo->class(10); // OK

$foo-> class = 10; // Parse error: syntax error, unexpected T_CLASS, expecting T_STRING or T_VARIABLE 
$foo-> class(10); // Parse error too

The lexer was re-written in 5.3 to use a different tool which produces more expected results.

It's not something we can just fix in 5.2.
