Thanks, forcing 5.2 worked.

Disabling warnings from php strict in Drupal

I'm well aware that hacking core is frowned upon, but sometimes ya gotta do what ya gotta do. Running drupal 6 with views 2.x using PHP 5.4 (Fedora 17 in this case) yields a number of strict warnings that are not easily turned off. PHP doesn't allow you to turn off these strict warnings in its php.ini file, they come through even if E_STRICT is disabled, see for more details.
In order to fix this, I have edited includes/ and put the following at the beginning of function drupal_set_message starting after line 991:
// filter out strict warnings due to conflicts between views-2.x and PHP 5.4
if( !strncmp($message, 'strict warning:', 14) ) {
return isset($_SESSION['messages']) ? $_SESSION['messages'] : NULL;
There may be other messages that come through that you want to filter in this manner as well.
If there is a hook that can be used to filter drupal messages or a cleaner way to do this by adding a module instead of hacking core I'd love to hear about it.
