2 questions--

1) What OS are you using?
2) Does the file include PHP code? Otherwise, can you keep its contents
in a string and simply output that string? If it contains PHP code, are
you sure that there aren't any errors in the PHP code?

Ok, so it was a bit more than 2 questions :-)

BTW, when I only get part of the file in the browser, I open it with Pico
and it's all there.  So I know that $stuff = ob_end_clean() is working, and
that $stuff is being written to the fopen(ftp://...) pointer correctly.

I suspect that PHP is including before the file is closed, but not returning
an error.  I haven't found any other mechanisms in PHP that would allow me
to verify that the file is really, really, really closed after using
fflush() and fclose() on an fopen("ftp://...";).  Any ideas?
