Google oauth2 fails at $client->authenticate($_GET['code']);

So, you may have already figured this, but Google returns the correct URI with the "code" parameter in the GET.

The entire process stalls at that point and never does the redirect (even without my "echo").

I am assuming that it stops because I get a blank page and there's not a single character when I veiw HTML source in the browser.
