I've seen that before too. In PHP there are different options for
how handled/displayed. In general WordPress tries to have PHP not
show warnings/errors for exactly these sorts of reasons. There is
nothing stopping an admin from enabling PHP warnings/errors from
being shown in the return data, which is what you are probably seeing.
You should never see this for WordPress.com blogs because we
specifically turn that off.
