Trying to overload SplObjectStorage __construct(),
but got an fatal error: Cannot call constructor

Notice that in manual
class SplObjectStorage does not contain constructor, at least public.

Test script:
Class Foo extends SplObjectStorage
	public function __construct()

$foo = new Foo();

Expected result:
It should work

Actual result:
Fatal error: Cannot call constructor

Simply do not call the parent constructor whereas SplObjectStorage doesn't have it. Declaring the constructor in the derived class is not the problem.

You can reproduce the same error inheriting from an user class without constructor, and trying to call it.
