Comment(by hakre):

 Can you provide a hint since which WordPress release you encountered the
 problem first? Was anyone able to reproduce it?

 For documentation purposes, I suggest you post it on your own blog and/or
 create a page in Codex. I put a lot of usefull stuff on my user page in
 codex. Especially for those things which can not be easily solved with

 What kind of PHP Error is it? Notice? Warning? Fatal?

 I put this Code-Fragment into wp-config.php to be able to test bleeding
  * error_reporting_unstrict
  * Disable Strict Errors if applicable because wordpress
  * is not php 5 strict compatible.
 function error_reporting_unstrict()
         // check if E_STRICT does already exists
         if ( defined($name = 'E_STRICT') === FALSE )

          * Change Error-Reporting by only removing
          * the E_STRICT

         // Read out current Error Reporting value
         $orig = error_reporting(0);

         // If E_STRICT is set, unset it in the bitmask
         if ( $orig & E_STRICT )
                 // Unsetting E_STRICT from bitmask
                 $changed = ($orig ^ E_STRICT);

                 // Set the changed Bitmask

 // Disable Strict Errors //

 it dynamically removes the E_STRICT errors. At list with those disabled
 with the recommended PHP 5.2.latest-stable it does a good job. I dunno
 wether or not I have that zend.setting reported here en- or disabled.

 I hope this infos can help.
