This would be a lot easier to diagnose if you could provide information

   - hosting environment
   - php.ini settings
   - full text of error messages
   - what types of pages/requests generate the errors

If the errors are only showing in 2:10,000 installations, then there's a
good chance that those 2 users have an unusual server configuration or
file/URL structure. Could be caused by something like trying to open/include
a file or image that isn't in the typical location, relative to your theme.
