When calling error_reporting() before any lambda function will cause a 
Fatal Error.

Putting error_reporting() in a separate file "fix" this bug.

Reproduce code:
error_reporting(E_ALL); // uncomment this line to work

$lambda = function() { print 'Hello World'; };

// calling error_reporting(E_ALL) at this point will not cause Fatal Error

Expected result:
Hello World

Actual result:
Fatal error: Function name must be a string in D:\www\lambda.php on line

I'm having similar issue on the same OS & PHP version.

$lambda = function() { print 'Hello World'; };
$array['test'] = 2; // this trigger a Fatal Error

I did a fresh install of PHP 5.3.1 and no more Fatal Error
