I've noticed this too.  I assumed it was something network related as I 
was trying to access mythweb from work.  However I've just tried using 
IE form home and it doesn't work from there either (Firefox works just 

I'm also running Gentoo with mythweb-0.20_p11671 but mythtv-0.20_p12599 
and I'm pretty sure I've not updated either of them recently.   I did 
notice the other day that emerge work caused PHP to be updated (and 
phpmyadmin seems to have broken) so I wonder if it is related to that in 

If I run 'wget http://localhost/mythweb/' from my linux machine, the 
response ends with

in <b>/var/www/localhost/htdocs/mythweb/includes/session.php</b> on line 
<b>60</b><br />

I.e. and error _after_ the closing html tag.  Yet I don't see this if I 
do view-source in Firefox.

Looking in session.php, line 60, it's doing something about saving or 
loading or updating some session info to a table in the mythweb DB.

I don't really see how it still works in Firefox though  ( I guess 
Firefox is just better ;)  )

Anyone have any more ideas?
