getImageSize() is not working with remote files.
It always gives a warning with every image file.
Imagefiles were checked and were not corrupted.
Local files work just fine.

A search on google revealed then many sites encounter this problem.

Are there any solutions?

PHP is running as an ISAPI module on IIS 5.0

Reproduce code:
$srcSize = getImageSize("");

Expected result:
    [0] => 130
    [1] => 67
    [2] => 1
    [3] => width="130" height="67"

Actual result:
Warning: getimagesize(): stream does not support seeking in test.php on line 2
