FWIW: Hard to see this as a WordPress core bug. ceil() is a core PHP function. The only way to get that error would be if ceil() was a forbidden function in php.ini.

Works for me, on Windows, but not using xampp.

There are more than 10 instances of ceil() in core. It's called via check_admin_referer() on virtually every screen in the admin.

If it sporadically fails in some cases and works on a second attempt, it's probably insufficient memory or some other configuration issue.

Please try the support forums for troubleshooting:
