I have an obsolete PDA browser which doesn't support gz compressed pages but sends out the following (unnecessary) header in it's HTTP requests:

"Accept-Encoding: "

using ob_start("ob_gzhandler"); leads to the browser receiving empty pages.

Thank you for taking the time to report a problem with PHP.
Unfortunately you are not using a current version of PHP -- 
the problem might already be fixed. Please download a new
PHP version from http://www.php.net/downloads.php

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
to the version you tested and change the status back to "Open".
Again, thank you for your continued support of PHP.

I can't upgrade PHP on my host's server but I did get someone to test with PHP 4.3.0 on Linux and the problem was fixed, thanks.

If you want to let PHP automatically choose an appropreate encoding scheme
by Accept-Encoding header that is sent by clients,
try zlib.output_compression directive instead of using ob_* stuff.

Not a php developer issue though.
