config: php from 4.3.1 to 4.3.4 , apache2, latest versions (now
2.0.48), latest openssl

apache & php configured with ssl, we have either our (thawte) ssl
server certificate, either our custom certificate, built from openssl

Server randomly sends source code of php page to browser,
(from 10 pageviews, 3 pages are sent as source code, 7 as good -> php
processed page)

- it happens only on some php pages, don't rely on amount scripting in

- happens on pages, which includes other php scripts (php libs etc)

but: it started to happen from php version 3.x.x , last version of php,
which functioned well, was 4.2.3 , without any flaw or problem

happens on all browsers, for example opera, ie, netscape

on version 4.3.1, php crashed with segfault (it was on httpd error
log), now (version 4.3.2 -> 4.3.4) it only sends source of page to
browser, no crash and crash info written to httpd error log.

i thought it was due to deflate mod i am using on apache2, but it
happened too when deflate filter was switched off (commented out in
