When referring to a not existing namespace / class in a variable assignment of a 
class (see code example), a fatal error is (correctly) triggered. 

However, the error does not give a hint at where the problem actually lies but 
refers to the location where the faulty class is instantiated.

Test script:
namespace FooNamespace {
	class FooClass {
		const MYCONST = 1;

namespace BarNamespace {

		// this would prevent the fatal error:
#	use FooNamespace as Foo;
	class BarClass {
			// the error is triggered by this line:
		protected $variable = Foo\FooClass::MYCONST;

namespace {
		// "Fatal error: Class 'BarNamespace\Foo\FooClass' not found in" the following line:
	$bar = new \BarNamespace\BarClass();

Expected result:
Fatal error: Class 'BarNamespace\Foo\FooClass' not found in test.php on line <line 
number of the variable assignment in BarClass>

Actual result:
Fatal error: Class 'BarNamespace\Foo\FooClass' not found in test.php on line <line 
number of new statement>
