Subject Re: CLEANUP subroutine delaying response
Date Fri, 09 Jul 2004 23:18:59 GMT
My suspicion is that the CLEANUP routine is called after the response to
the client is put into the output buffer, but before the output buffer
is flushed.  As redirects are always fairly short, the redirect fits
entirely within one buffer in this case, and so nothing has been sent to
the client yet, even though all other processing has finished.

I'm using Embperl 1.3.4, so I can't say for certain this is what is
happening, but I do notice something similar on pages that have an
extended cleanup process - the tail of the page doesn't show up until
that process finishes.  I haven't complained about this, as this
condition only occurs on some of my test pages.
