If PHP error reporting is set to include E_STRICT, a php strict warning occurs in ctools_content_render():

Creating default object from empty value in (line 276 of /.../ctools/includes/content.inc).

Looks like this is somehow caused by an empty panel on our website but not sure if this is therefore a panels bug, so reporting it to the ctools project.

Hmm. It's possible that this fixes it, just prior to the line above:

if (empty($content)) {
  return;
}

However, I'd want to be sure it doesn't break anything when that actually happens.

Are you able to reproduce this situation still?

I'm able to reproduce it. It happened when calling views_content_views_panes_content_type_render() and ctools_entity_field_content_type_render() -- it seems those function might return as-well.
