Thanks for your response.

I don't have any way as yet to get a tcp dump of contents.

what does ethereal run on? is it shareware?

I'm having trouble imagining how this could be the server not
responding, because of what I said in my first post: when the
same record is queried through the same php, with a web-
browser doing the request, the result is good.
