PHP4/PEAR/Command/Common.php (v 1.18 2002/10/12 13:43:41) has a function called getHelpArgs in which variables $sapp and $lapp have no default values set. It is possible to get the following errors when using a "pear help install" command: 

Notice: Undefined variable:  sapp in Common.php on line 209
Notice: Undefined variable:  lapp in Common.php on line 209

because the "if (isset($v['arg']))" test has no "else" clause.
