This seems quite odd...
In the ...

      function() or dosomething;

...construct it seems that PHP only allows the usage of standard operators and 
functions in the place of "dosomething", so the 'return' doesn't work at all since 
it's a operator-like thingy.

The following snippet will produce a parse error:

function test(){
    return false;

function test2(){
      test() or return;


Thanks in advance for a quick fix :)

Keep up the good work!
