In Zend\Log\Logger::registerErrorHandler() the PHP function set_error_handler() is used. The callback is defined as an anonymous function. This function does not return anything, so it is not possible to use the native PHP error handling together with custom error handling.

According to the PHP manual the callback function can return FALSE, in that case the native PHP error handling is triggered after the custom error handler has been executed.

  1. I propose an additional parameter to registerErrorHandler():
    public static function registerErrorHandler(Logger $logger, $nativeErrorHandling = false) { ... }

  2. the definition of the anonymous callback function should be changed to use the new parameter:
    function($errno, $errstr, $errfile, $errline, $errcontext) use ($errorHandlerMap, $logger, $nativeErrorHandling) {

  3. Near the end of the anonymous callback function (currently line 396 in ZF 2.0.6) something like this should be added:
    if ($nativeErrorHandling) {
    return false;
