Description of problem:
when I run a php script which contains the imagettftext command, I get no 
output. The httpd error log contains the following:
[Mon Oct 28 20:51:44 2002] [info] (104)Connection reset by peer: 
core_output_filter: writing data to the network
[Mon Oct 28 20:51:44 2002] [info] (32)Broken pipe: core_output_filter: writing 
data to the network
If I run the same php script with the imagettftext command commented out, no 
errors are logged and the correct image is output to the browser.

Solution found.  When specifying the font file to use, the path to the font 
file must be absolute.  i.e. /var/www/html/project/arial.ttf  not just
