Ctags for PHP detects nonexistent classes in comments. It appears that it detects any word following the word "class" as a class name, but if there is a comment in the file that mentions the word "class", it should ignore the comment.
I'm seeing this also in SVN Revision 804 (December 2012), so it still isn't fixed.

+1, but I think this project is abandoned.
Could you try univerersal-ctags?
If it is reproduced in u-ctags, could you open an issue at the project with a sample input?
We would like to fix it.
Thanks for the pointer! I starred the repo and will let you know.
In the meanwhile, there are multiple .ctags configurations available on google search that fix the PHP regex.
