Creating a working example failed. And we have a codebase of >10MB phpcode.

But these are the exact conditions of the failure:

We have a class B that extends A. Both have a method f() but they differ such that a syntaxcheck would say this:
Strict Standards: Declaration of B::f() should be compatible with that of A::f().
However B is loaded using __autoload('B'), normally.

Now we say (without B loaded) 
  $a = new ReflectionClass('B');
And php exits with code 0. No logging, no error, no Exception, no SEGV.

some added debugprints in reflection_class_object_ctor() show this: 
ARA: reflection_class_object_ctor entry
ARA: calling getThis
ARA: name:'MO_KieskeurigExporter', calling zend_lookup_class

And I never return from zend_lookup_class!
Unfortunately putting a print in there probably floods the system here.
Working around the bug is much easier than debugging it. But maybe someone
more knowledgeable than me knows where that exit(0); call is parked??

Test script:
Not reproducable.

Expected result:
I accept an ReflectionException to be thrown. This does happen if I change the classname, so it truly cannot be found. Also, if I fix the method to match the superclass' one, everything is fine as well. 

Actual result:
php exits with code 0.

However a minimal example attempt worked perfectly ok.
