I have determined the source of this problem.  The fsockopen functions
(which are causing the errors) in drupal_http_request are already
prefixed with the @ operator... but it's not doing anything.  Why? 
Because Drupal implements its own custom error handler in the
error_handler function (inside common.inc).
To make the error_handler function respect the @ operator, this code
can be added to the top of the function:

// don't respond to the error if it was suppressed with a '@'
  if (error_reporting() == 0) {

This code was borrowed from a comment made on php.net [1].

When accessing the admin...settings page on a subdomain site, I get the
following two errors:
warning: fsockopen(): php_network_getaddresses: getaddrinfo failed:
Name or service not known in
/home/username/public_html/includes/common.inc on line 227.
warning: fsockopen(): unable to connect to sub.domain.com:80 in
/home/username/public_html/includes/common.inc on line 227.
This is a result of a failure to resolve the subdomain at my host. (DNS
is hosted elsewhere from the server.)  This could be easily fixed by
adding an "@" before
$request = drupal_http_request($GLOBALS['base_url'] . '/system/test');
in system.module.
I don't have an environment set up to create a patch at the moment, but
the change is very minor.
