I keep getting this error:

Notice: Unknown: Unable to find the wrapper "compress.bzip2" - did you forget to enable it when you configured PHP? in Unknown on line 0

no matter what php script I run, even just phpinfo(); 

Reproduce code:
Any php file at all

Expected result:
No error, output whatever script was

Actual result:
Notice: Unknown: Unable to find the wrapper "compress.bzip2" - did you forget to enable it when you configured PHP? in Unknown on line 0

then output from script, along with header errors if any headers were sent from the script that was run

Did you load the bz2 extension into PHP?
 [2005-10-01 03:04 UTC] webmaster at 24-99-92-156 dot no-ip dot com
No, it was not included in either the php or the pecl zip files.

Unless you mean php_bz2_filter.dll, the error appeared weather or not it was loaded. I could not find php_bz2.dll anywhere. Are they the same thing?

I was having the same problem. The last snapshot (link above) solved it.

The Problem also appears to exist in PHP 5.2.0, on WinXP Professional,...but the probability of it's appear is random!!!

Here's how to reproduce the bug:

you need to have your php.ini file configured to display errors and show errors "E_ALL | E_STRICT"

I had E_ALL and it didn't show up.
Once adding "E_STRICT", it started popping as reported before.
Maybe the new snapshot didn't have E_STRICT in the ini file.

Php version i'm using: 5.2.5 (Downloaded it in December 2007)

I'm using windows binaries.

I am running PHP 5.2.5 Windows 2000 server and IIS 5. I get the same error when "error_reporting = E_ALL" is set in the php.ini file. I have it set to E_STRICT and I am no longer recieving this error.

I am running 5.2.5 on WinXP Pro with Apache 2.2.6 and the error is always there when I first open my browser and load a page. If I reload the page immediately the error disappears. I have loaded the bz2.

I have the same problem on every PHP script execution. I am using PHP 5.2.6 on Windows Server 2000. gz2 is NOT installed.

If we are not using BZ extension, we may comment the following lines in php.ini:
