Segfault when trying to construct a DatePeriod with an unserialized DateInterval.

Test script:
$start = new DateTime('2003-01-02 08:00:00');
$end = new DateTime('2003-01-02 12:00:00');
$diff = $start->diff($end);
$p = new DatePeriod($start, $diff, 2);

$diff_s = serialize($diff);

$diff_un = unserialize($diff_s);
//  Will segfault
$p = new DatePeriod($start, $diff_un, 2);

Expected result:
No Segfault

Actual result:

DatePeriod, as most others Date* objects, does not have proper serialization 
handler, this is the cause of the segfault.
 [2011-01-22 08:45 UTC]
I meant DateInterval, but true for DatePeriod too.

Another way to have a related crash:

class dummy extends DateInterval {
        public function __construct() {
$x = new dummy;
$x->y = 1;
