My script writes stuff all the time to the client. I did notice that
MySQL wasn't being sent any queries after the clients disconnected which
leads me to believe that the loop isn't actually being executed. The
Apache/PHP4 process is getting stuck somewhere..
I mailed the php4-devel list as well but nothing back from them yet,
I'll go with a long timeout instead for the time being.
