This bug was discovered using the PHP Base Library with
PHP 3.0.3. Part of this library essentially performs a
call like:

eval('$GLOBALS["auth"]=new Album_Auth;');

The problem is that if Album_Auth has a constructor, then
a Parse Error occurs on the line containing the closing
'}' at the end of the class definition. If there is no
constructor, everything is fine.

A workaround I found was to modify the code so that the
call became:


and I defined a the makeobject function as:

  function makeobject($obj) {
    return new $obj;

This seems to work fine.

This should be fixed.
Can you please update to the latest CVS and see if
the problem persists?
