What is the PHP config setting which enables or prevents newlines in debug output from being steered clear of?
On two different installs (a dev laptop running MAMP/OSX, along with a dev server running debian) I see spun sentences within the error logs when debugging.
On Debian this seems in /var/log/apache2/error.log as
[Thu Jul 30 11:32:34 2009] [error] [client 126.96.36.199] Array\n(\n  => 1\n  => 2\n  => 4\n)\n, referer: http://dev.example.org/
On OSX this seems in /Programs/MAMP/logs/php_error_log as
[30-Jul-2009 11:34:00] Array (  => 1  => 2  => 4 )
I favor the MAMP method for debugging (aside from moving logfiles towards the /Programs directory).
