fgets not blocking

P: n/a
Say you open a socket connection with fsockopen. Normally, subsequent
calls to fgets are going to block until input is ready. Unless, of
course, socket_set_blocking is used to disable blocking (which I'm not
doing).

Unfortunately, this does not seem to always be the case. I still, on
occasion, get empty strings from fgets. Since feof returns false,
there's still input left. Yet fgets isn't giving it to me, as it
should be.

Now, I am aware that fgets stops when a new line character is
encountered, but that new line character is supposed to,
never-the-less, be included in the string that fgets returns. In my
case, it isn't. I'm just getting empty strings. And I don't see why.

Any ideas?
