This code snippet:

class test {
      function test(&$test1=false) {
      }
} 

gives me 

Parse error - parse error, expecting `')''

on the line with the constructor (function ...)

shouldn't this work (or at least return a useful error)?

This should not work - how can you pass a literal value by reference?

However, you are right about the error message - it does seem to be incorrect.

hmm, i see your point.

is it possible to define a value that should be 
passwd by reference as optional?

You cant pass a literal via reference. Closing report. This is in the todo for 4.1.
