it is pretty sure not a php problem...
if you try a couple times, the connection just breaks at random points in
the page, if it was a php error, it should always be in the same spot.
also the server is somewhat slow responding (from my dsl i've had some
requests to it take over three minutes - probably partially because my
connection already has some packet loss, and together with a broken peer
it causes more problems).
i would suggest to check the server's network connection/configuration -
something is badly broken there.
