I'e been using header("location: "); throughout my codes to redirect users after db functions are completed. 

Suddenly, for one individual script, it produces a blank screen.

I've seen a similar bug report which is not useful, because, in this case, it is restrcited to pa particular script which is no different to the others in anyway.

For your info, any code placed after the header does not get processed e.g. <? print "hello";?>.

Reproduce code:
header("location: "); 

Expected result:
To redirect the user to the homepage.

Actual result:
Blank screen.

It appears that there has been some type of issue with the cache, which has caused this error. I am investigating it and will return shortly.

Cache problems are not PHP bugs. Please ask further questions on the php-general mailing list.

I apologise, but i didn't realise that.

It sometimes happens that you hit a blank page (unrelated to header()) and that is cached -> next request gives the same blank page from cache.. there are ways to avoid this, but please discuss this on
