 I've been trying to write a plugin that sets the Last-Modified header for
 single posts.  (Yes, I've read #2335; I don't have any dynamic content
 like sidebars on my individual post pages.)  However, whenever I actually
 set the Last-Modified header the page becomes blank on every other reload;
 this also happens when users post comments on the page.

 The code is pretty simple:

 function lastmod() {
     if( is_single() ) {
         $modDate = mysql2date("D, d M Y H:i:s
         header("Last-Modified: $modDate");

 Environment is WordPress 2.0.2, PHP Version 5.1.2.  In case it matters,
 the site on which this happens is hosted by DreamHost but is a manual
 install of WP.
