problem 1 : how do I call the "::" operator and how do I call what it 
does if it is no static call.

problem 2 : the "bug" with incorrect $this I mentioned, it is at least 
unexcpected and should be documented (that you can't rely on $this using 
"::" ) but since no one likes undefined behaviour it would be fine to 
see it fixed - my opinion is that using "::" $this should never be set 
to anything...

no, it simply uses "::" that is an undocumented feature
