PHP.net says regarding set_error_handler:

It is important to remember that the standard PHP error handler is
completely bypassed.
will have no effect and your error handler will be called
regardless - however you are still able to read the current value of
act appropriately. Of particular note is that this value will be 0 if
the statement that caused the error was prepended by the @ error-control
operator <http://www.php.net/manual/en/language.operators.errorcontrol.php>.

If you need more detailed, I'll be glad to explain, but I think that
statement should suffice.
