More SS 3 issues : set_environment_type() and init()?

When I get PHP errors in my SS 3 install, I am only getting a generic 500 error instead of a custom SS error, despite having Director::set_environment_type("dev") set in my _config.php.

Also, why am I getting the following error:

PHP Fatal error: Cannot redeclare Page_Controller::init() in ...../mysite/code/Page.php on line 40

How can I get a chunk of PHP code to run when the page loads without init()?

You can still call init(), works fine on my sites. Check you simply haven't got 2 of the same function pasted in the same file :)

On this one, you were right! init() was already provided in Page.php, it was just at the bottom so I didn't notice it ;) Sorry!
