You need to tell the server not to buffer your output. Do something like this at
the top of the routine you use to output the stream.

If you need to know what's happening HTTP wise, use some network analyzing tool
like ethereal. But my guess is just that your web server isn't sending the info
yet cause it's buffer isn't full.
