If you create new object and pass to it's constructor argument from function call, that has thrown an exception, the object's constructor is not being called (which is correct behavior), but object's destructor is being called (which is not correct behavior). See reproduce code.

Reproduce code:

function throw_exc() {
  throw new Exception('TEST_EXCEPTION');

class Test {
  public function __construct() {
    echo 'Constr' ."\n";
  public function __destruct() {
    echo 'Destr' ."\n";

try {
  $T =new Test( throw_exc());
} catch( Exception $e) {
  echo 'Exception: ' .$e->getMessage();
