Thanks Khalid,

Its on every page so its not something specific I could narrow down in
Drupal other than the autoload that's including field.module for
things like FieldException on every page. But that shouldn't really

That's interesting that you didn't have any problem. I was using
gentoo's mod_fastcgi with hand compiled versions of php 5.2. I'll try
fcgid and maybe a couple of versions of php if that doesn't make a
difference. Seeing if another opcode cache like APC would trigger it
would be interesting too.
