Reflection actitivy against a child of DOMElement can result in:

"ReflectionException: Class DOMUserData does not exist"

presumably due to dom_node_get_user_data in ext/dom/node.c.

The actual class does not appear to exist, although the method shows it as a datatype for a parameter.

Reproduce code:
$r2 = new ReflectionClass('DOMUserData');
echo r2->getName();

Expected result:

Actual result:
ReflectionException: Class DOMUserData does not exist

Is ext/dom enabled in your build? And loaded? :)
 [2009-09-24 11:31 UTC]
Yes, ext/dom is enabled ---------------------------------------------:
$ php -i | grep -i dom
DOM/XML => enabled
DOM/XML API Version => 20031129

I'll modify the test script to verify it also ----------------------:
echo 'Verify DOM is loaded:' . PHP_EOL;
$r1 = new ReflectionClass('DOMElement');
echo PHP_EOL;

echo 'Does DOMUserData exist?' . PHP_EOL;
$r2 = new ReflectionClass('DOMUserData');

With expected output ------------------------------------------------:
Verify DOM is loaded:
string(10) "DOMElement"

Does DOMUserData exist?
string(11) "DOMUserData"

And actual output ---------------------------------------------------:
Verify DOM is loaded:
string(10) "DOMElement"

Does DOMUserData exist?

This bug report was prompted by PEAR bug #14640, where phpDocumenter encounters the same ReflectionException when attempting to document the DOMElement parent class of a user's code class that extends DOMElement.  Declaring an empty dummy DOMUserData class in the user's code solves the issue.
