I spent a little more time on this again hoping to get it fixed.
In SVN r4828, I adjusted the regular expression for parsing PHP
functions a bit and I think it works now as expected or at least better
than before. All function definitions I tried (with static,
public, ... modifiers and some without and so on) worked and I got the
expected argument list as calltip.

Though, as muliple times mentioned before, I'm not a PHP guy. Feedback
is welcome.
