Yes, this is a known issue. The private message is sent, however the email notification for the users that have activated this feature at their account options fails to be sent. This error notifies that PHP failed to send a message from the defined SMTP server, as the script instructed. This can either be a result of a mistake at the script, of the PHP configuration, of the SMTP server configuration, or of some other factor that causes PHP to not be able to perform this operation (like system permissions, chrooted/jailed environment, traffic filtering, etc).
I'm sure Chris and Sahir will deal with it as soon as they find the time.
