I do have exact the same level of error reporting and I do the SAME 
request, no changes in the  number of parameters. At this point of view 
the SOAP fault is not so crystal clear to me...
Anyway I added the two missing arguments like requestet by SOAP fault.

$rpc_arguments = array(
  'owneronly' => false,
  'permission' => 0

this leads me to the next problem.
