AKICOLJ: Output buffering in libapache_mod_php4 and IE

There's a call to ob_start at the beginning of the script, and at a certain point in the middle, we have a call to ob_flush. Later, when we're done, there's a call to ob_end_flush.

In Firefox, we (correctly?) get the page thus far, and in the fullness of time the rest of the page appears as the server-side scripts get on with their thing.

In Internet Explorer, we have to wait until the whole page is received before we see anything.

We're using:
 apache 1.3.33-4
 libapache-mod-php4 4.3.10-12
 Firefox 1.0.4
 MISE 6.0.2900

Are we missing something?

Answers of the form "Don't use Internet Explorer" will be regarded as justified-but-unhelpful.
