Everytime executing a PHP-Script which contains the header-function it crashes with the message "Document contains no data!"

e.g. this simple script:
header ("Location: show_me_bnet.php3");

don´t no if it is relevant, but here is my php3.ini file:

; About this file ;
; This file controls many aspects of PHP's behavior.  In order for PHP to
; read it, it must be named 'php3.ini'.  PHP looks for it in the current
; working directory, in the path designated by the environment variable
; PHPRC, and in the path that was defined in compile time (in that order).
; Under Windows, the compile-time path is the Windows directory.  The
; path in which the php3.ini file is looked for can be overriden using
; the -c argument in command line mode.
; The syntax of the file is extremely simple.  Whitespace and Lines
; beginning with a semicolon are silently ignored (as you probably guessed).
; Section headers (e.g. [Foo]) are also silently ignored, even though
; they might mean something in the future (they probably won't).
; Options are specified using the syntax key = value or key = "complex value".
; Key names are *case sensitive*.  foo = bar is different from FOO = bar.
; 'value' can be any number, word or keyword (keywords are On, Off, True,
; False, Yes and No, and are case insensitive).
; 'complex value' can be just about anything, expcept for " and a newline
; Boolean flags can be turned on using the values 1, On, True or Yes.
; They can be turned off using the values 0, Off, False or No.
; All the values in the php3.ini-dist file correspond to the builtin
; defaults (that is, if no php3.ini is used, or if you delete these lines,
; the builtin defaults will be identical).

Thank you for taking the time to report a problem with PHP.
Unfortunately, PHP 3 is no longer supported. Please download
the latest version of PHP 4 from

If you are able to reproduce the bug with one of the latest
versions of PHP, please change the PHP version on this bug report
