Unfortunately, I have no idea what is wrong, meaning I don't understand the issue. Are you saying that since you upgraded your site to php version 5.6, you have had 3 - 4 bots trying to register on your site?
I am guessing that you are saying that 3 - 4 bots have gotten through, and I think I know why, and that wouldn't have been anything you did, that would be my fault. Upload that attached files and you should be all set. When trying to figure out what was going on with your site and the issue of the password reset, I uploaded all fresh files of the "Your_Account" module, essentially removing the honeypot from the registration process.
