I've been thinking about this a bit more.  I'm not sure if adding the ability to 
obtain the correct length of the buffered output in this case is more important than 
retailing the ability to save a non-user-specific version of the output.  

"Fixing" my problem would mean that a page caching system that writes plain .html 
files from database using the ob_ functions would be broken.

Would it be possible to add a function that performs the same function as trans-sid, 
but at a script level?  With this in place, I could turn off trans-sid and manipulate 
the output buffer directly.

A generic ob_filter() facility could come in handy for other things too, such as 
highlighing search terms in a page request.  Especially if it had a switch to filter 
the HTML, the marked up text, or both.

Actually, I guess trans-sid should be implemented as
output-buffering filter, just as gz-compression. Otherwise
what you are trying to do would never work.

Sorry, miscategorized.

I've got php4.3.3pl1 compiled as a CGI with --enable-trans-sid.

I currently use the ob_length function to send a Content-Length header with my 
semi-static pages to enhance their cacheability.  As soon as I enabled trans-sid with 
cookies disabled this behaviour broke, because ob_length appears to be calculated 
before the SID is applied to the page.  My pages get truncated by browsers that accept 
the content-length header (all modern browsers).
