I Have a Clean install of 2.3.2 + DataObjectManager

I've got his strange thing with the CMS - It won't load the CMS properly (I assume CSS ?) from the first load. Even you you hit Refresh on the browser it won't help. However if you press "Site Content" -The CMS starts functioning properly. (See the attached image to this post). This mostly happens on IE (however you can see this in Firefox if the cache is cleaned.

I tried setting apaches timeout for bigger values, however it didn't help.

Any Idea on how I can debug / fix that ?

PS - The situation is even worth with DataObjectManager - see the second file attached :(

Just an update on the issue. It looks like you can get this error if there are empty lines after the php closing tag "?>" in your code in any of the classes ... It took me 3 days to find it out.... Going mental.... :)

Not sure if its a SS bug or a php, however if anyone believes it is a SS bug -please push it to the buglist.

How to recreate in IE:

Install SS - 2.3.2
Write any custom class
Ad some empty lines after the "?>"

Clean the cache in IE (can put the "Reload page every visit" on)
Restart IE
Login to CMS, open any of the pages

PS - if cache is enabled - from the second load everything will load fine
PPS- Firefox also displays fine after caching.
