Thank you for this bug report. To properly diagnose the problem, we
need a short but complete example script to be able to reproduce
this bug ourselves. 

A proper reproducing script starts with <?php and ends with ?>,
is max. 10-20 lines long and does not require any external 
resources such as databases, etc.

If possible, make the script source available online and provide
an URL to it here. Try to avoid embedding huge scripts into the report.

Managed to get a script that will do it every time (seems that it raises a E_WARNING). Again, doesn't generate the warning on 5.0.2, does on 5.0.4.

  unpack("H*hex", 'abc');

  function err_handler($errno, $errstr, $errfile, $errline, $vars)
    echo $errno . ": " . $errstr;
