[MS4W-Users] Problems with PHP-Mapscript after upgrade

I run Mapserver from the latest ms4w-package (ms4w_3.0.3) on Windows XP,
Apache 2.2.19 with mod_fcgi 2.3.6, PHP 5.3.6.
I followed the installation docs "K. Installing the MS4W MapServer
Binaries in Other Environments", because I just need the PHP-Mapscript
in my Apache/PHP-Environment.
After Setup phpinfo() returns "MapServer version 6.0.1...", installation
seems to be OK :-)
Problem 1 occurs in PHP when using print_r() on the Mapscript -Objects,
because nothing is displayed.
$blank_map_object = new mapObj($map_file_path);
<snip>mapObj Object ( )</snip>
nothing more, no insight on properties.
But the map-object seems to be OK, because
writes the correct output.
Problem 2 occurs when setting a new projection to the above map-object:
$projection_obj = new projectionObj('+init=epsg:900913');
$blank_map_object->projection = $projection_obj;
In Mapserver 5.x everything worked as expected, but with MapServer 6 the
above code just doesn't run, no exceptions, no errors, nothing in the
error-log, just no reaction at all, the script stops.
I recognised some typos (?) in chapter k of the downloaded
documentation, some of the listed dlls aren't included or with other
versions ("aspell-15.dll" , "gdal17.dll", "gds32.dll"...)
