a (minor) PHP's bug.
I am not really sure about what happens internally, but my best guess
be that after a memory exhaustion, when I try to execute a custom error
handler with the register_shutdown_function (which is executed even after
fatal error) and try to access the element that provoked the memory
exhaustion, no error should raise instead of *Uninitialized string

I have prepared a little test case to reproduce the error and (I hope)
explain the error.


function my_error_handler($errno = '0', $errstr = '[FATAL] General
$errfile = 'N/A', $errline = 'N/A', $errctx = '') {

This seems to be your error. You set $errctx to be a string. But later on
you use it as an array.
Remove the = '' part. And it will function as expected.

You're right... However I don't like leaving non-default value in functions
so I did something like if(empty($errctx)) $errctx = array() in the first
line of the custom error handler which threw out the error message and
everything works ok now.
I think from 5.2 and up you can use the array keyword to force an array as parameter..
But -and correct me if I'm wrong- isn't isset (or empty) supposed to return
a FALSE whenever that variable doesn't exist?

With your help, I could reduce the test case into:

$asdf = 'hello world';
if (empty($asdf[4]['inventing'])) echo 'nice little world';
if (isset($asdf['inventing'][6])) echo 'little nice world';
// This works ok.
This works because the string $asdf is set with a value. So $asdf[4] exists but ['inventing'] doesn't so it will return false
$asdf = '';
if (empty($asdf[4]['inventing'])) echo 'nice little world';
if (isset($asdf['inventing'][6])) echo 'little nice world';
// This returns E_NOTICE
This doesn't work because the string $asdf is empty. So calling $asdf[4] will trigger a notice since there is no 4th character
Shouldn't these 2 examples work exactly the same way? (AKA as NÂș 1). If
not... why not? Both are string types, onyl difference is that one has no
characters in it while the other does, but essentialy they are both the
