I tried doing a "print Location" to a .cgi file on another domain, that does a "print Location" right back to a page on the target domain, but that doesn't work either -- the browser still stalls.
I know the server isn't tied up because while [some long process] is executing, I can still load pages from that domain the script is on in another browser window.
Maybe it's time to take a closer look at that [some long process]. You've been pretty coy about it so far. Somehow that [long process] has made itself a precondition for fulfilling the page request, when it should be doing its thing independently in the background. And the only reason you've noticed is that this time it happens to be a [long process]; if it were a [swift process] it could be doing exactly the same thing, only you wouldn't notice because it zips by too fast.
