New Comment:

For internal reasons there is nothing else the executor can do, so
catching such an exception will leave the executot in an unstable
state. Hence there is no exception.

Only in case of class_exists() and exception would be possible. But i
don't think someone will find a good solution for that and goes
implementing it.

When You try to implement some sort of class-loader, the
autoload-function is very usefull.
But as soon as you want the user-code to do something special when a
class isn't found, it'd be handy to throw out an exception, which the
user-code either can catch or ignore.

With the current beta2 that isn't possible as it seems.

Reproduce code:
function __autoload($class)
throw new Exception($class . " does not exist.");

$obj = new test(); // Where test is a non-existent class
catch(Exception $e)
echo $e;

Expected result:
Something like:
exception 'exception' with message 'test does not exist.' etc..

Actual result:
Fatal error: __autoload threw an exception in
/home/acm/public_html/kb/autoload.php on line 11
