Bug description:  eval adds function to global space rather than class method

I am trying to generate class methods on the fly.

I created a string which was php code for a function. I wished this funciton to be a 
class method. I call eval on the string, and it produces no errors. When I wish to 
call that method of the object, the script fails indicating a call to an undefined 
funciton. However, I can call that function in the page space, rather than as a class 
method. But, the function is useless unless it is a method.

The following is part of the code that is executed in the constructor:

$str = "";
foreach($this->getMappedAttributes() as $attribute)
  $str .= "$"."this->_".$attribute['attribute']." = \"\";";
  $str .= "function get".$attribute['attribute']."() {";
  $str .= "return $"."this->_".$attribute['attribute'].";}";
