Thank for all your hints. I have uploaded a little patch which will fix lots of notice messages which are normally surpressed (and they shall always be surpressed on a "productive/hot" blog) but they can be made visuable with error_reporting(E_ALL);.

I want your oppinion here: Do surpressed notices slow down the interpreter while parsing PHP scripts? In my view they do. Some mails past I wrote that the interpreter needs to "handle" them by doing some analysis (e.g. undefined variable or non-exisiting object used string-to-int converting where the most notices when I debug WP).

Do you share my oppinion about this matter?

I use the APD and pprofp program here. :-) But which time is the most important? Total elapsed, system or user time? Sorry for the n00b question.

I will try out to get my blog installed in Intranet and then disable every plugin step-by-step.

Btw: the Extended Archive Plugin (or so?) did show up the most notice messages. And I could fix everyone. :-) I send my patch to the author to let him know it.

I will try this var_dump($wpdb) thing out. Thanks. And I'm "root" of my server. :-)
