From manual page:
when call a static funciton name with a same as class name will get this error.

  1 <?php
  2 class A{
  3     static public function A(){
  4         echo 'hi';
  5     }
  6 }
  7 A::A();
Fatal error: Constructor A::A() cannot be static in /t.php on line 6

Test script:
class A{
    static public function A(){
      echo 'hi';

That is correct behaviour. From :
if PHP 5 cannot find a __construct() function for a given class, and the class did not inherit one from a parent class, it will search for the old-style constructor function, by the name of the class.
