I've had it a couple of times also but I also only ever noticed it occurring

I'm using Apache 1.3.37 PHP 5.2.3 phpBB 3.0.4
I *do* know that its not anything to do with the Database, because I have
had it on PHP pages that just call from a .html document.
Maybe its not much help but the only thing I can find in common is we are
