It's not a problem in the PHP package.  It is a problem in the PHP code
you are using.  I've seen the same issue.  Fixing the PHP code you are
using will fix the problem.

It was rather obscure - but I finally found the culprit. I had installed a PEAR routine and it had created a _prepend.php that contained only a single new line character!
