Description:
------------
Object oriented style mysqli->connect_error string always null even when a connection error occurs. Tried with bogus host name, bogus user name, bogus password, and bogus schemata...result always the same (mysqli->connect_error is NULL). Note: Procedural style always returns expected string value. 

Installed PHP with Windows Installer, Apache 2.2 Module and the following extensions: BZ2, MCRYPT, MHASH, MYSQLI, PDO, TIDY, XMLRPC, XSL and ZIP.

Reproduce code:
---------------
<?php
$mysqli = new mysqli("bogushost", "username", "password", "schemata");

$connecterror = "Object oriented style mysqli->connect_error string: ".$mysqli->connect_error."</br>";
echo $connecterror;

printf("Proceedural style mysqli_connect_error string: %s\n", mysqli_connect_error()."</br>");

/* check connection never works*/
if ($mysqli->connect_error()) {
	printf("Connect failed: %s\n", mysqli_connect_error()."</br>");
    exit();
}

/* close connection */
$mysqli->close();
?>

Expected result:
----------------
Object oriented style mysqli->connect_error string: Unknown MySQL server host 'bogus' (11001)
Proceedural style mysqli_connect_error string: Unknown MySQL server host 'bogus' (11001)
Connect failed: Unknown MySQL server host 'bogus' (11001)


Actual result:
--------------
Object oriented style mysqli->connect_error string:
Proceedural style mysqli_connect_error string: Unknown MySQL server host 'bogus' (11001)

Please do not submit the same bug more than once. An existing
bug report already describes this very problem. Even if you feel
that your issue is somewhat different, the resolution is likely
to be the same. 

Thank you for your interest in PHP.
