Sure, but are you logging them to a file, and properly inspecting them?

When a plugin fatal errors on activation, it does so immediately before the
page redirects. Then it attempts to re-load the plugin into an iframe (so
you can see the error), but that's not foolproof. The point is, use an error
log to catch those.

Also, for WordPress on PHP 5.3+, use E_ALL & ~E_DEPRECATED & ~E_STRICT.
