I don't think its a bug in PHPUnit. Its happening because of backtrace
information part in error handler due to which whatever parameters you are
passing to testGetDispErrorsForDisplayFalse() will reappear in $output in
backtrace section. Moreover, the parameters will be converted using
htmlspecialchars(). As the 6th parameter ($output_hide) of the function
contains html tags it will get converted by htmlspecialchars and then added
to the $output (this is the thing that appears at L342 of [2] you mentioned
before). So, you have to change your 6th parameter of data set #0 so that
it does not contain html tags. Note that you cannot even replace your
parameter with htmlspecialchars() equivalent string like string containing
< or > because each '&' of that string will again be replaced by
& again and again. Hence, change your test data accordingly.
