You probably have some whitespace (a space, new line, anything at all) before that first <?.  Remove it.

If you are trying to use any header redirect commands after anything, remove them - it won't work and will result in this error.

The ... seems to be the issue.

What is interesting is that this does NOT appear in the view-source.

Can you create the following PHP file.

<?php
session_start();
phpinfo();
?>

Run that and see if you have the same problem.

In looking further into the ethereal output, the characters are not dots but 0xEF 0xBB 0xBF or \357\273\277

Which has lost me!

I wonder if you've somewhere got some sort of compression going on.

I know that if you use zlib compression on the server, you can't use it within PHP also (double compression wouldn't be decoded correctly at the client).
