Script termination and reload after 5 minutes

Strange problem on a lamp installation: A script runs longer than 5  
minutes and sends no output to the browser until it is finished. When  
called at customer site it gets stopped after exactly 5 minutes and is  
reloaded automatically 4 times, then it gives up. This is logged in  
Apache access log.

I have no clue what causes the reload after 5 minutes of "no data  
received". Could be the browser, could be the proxy. I even do not have  
a problem with the behaviour, you could avoid that by sending something  
to the browser periodically.

BUT: The script gets stopped completely after the 5 minute period. That  
is what I dont like... No PHP log entry, no apache log entry about that.  
Just like killed. "ignore_user_abort" is enabled in PHP configuration.

Any ideas what causes the script termination and how that can be avoided?

Configuration details:

RedHat AS
Apache 1.3.34
PHP 4.4.1 (Apache module)
Zend Optimizer 2.6.0

Best regards
