I am developing a website and when refreshing a screen or simply accessing to a page I have the following error: 

Fatal error: fatal flex scanner internal error--end of buffer missed in /www/docs/index.php on line 1

This can occurs at any page and giving me any line number. 
I read a lot about things like that and I think that it is due to the include I use. I think that it is due to the fact that the file included is not entirely read and t gives an error.

In fact, in my pages I use several includes that contains my functions library and my page header and footer.

This easily reproductible when I acces very fast the same page (eg: fast clics).

Can somebody confirm that I found the right cause of this error ?
Most important, Is there any solution to avoid those kind of problems ?

Thank you in advance,


Fontana Renato

I do not admit... (Hope this is the same error, even it has not exactly the same "words" in it)

Fatal error: input in flex scanner failed in /home/worldtalk/public_html/info.php3 on line 1

This error I get, when I simply autorefresh a page (at 30 secs) - The error appears randomly... (perhaps more often if the server load is high)

=> I read, that it could have something to do with FastCGI compatibility...
