FileMaker Server 12 - Not closing XML/PHP connections

I am experiencing a strange issue with our FileMaker 12 server. It is not correctly closing XML (and to a lesser extent PHP) connections.


Even after simple queries are finished, the fmxml connections are still showing in the client list for the file. Once there are 2 or more of these users 'connected' the web publishing engine appears to completely freeze up. Restarting the WPE or manually disconnecting those web clients resolves the issue.


I have noticed the same problem happening even with the FileMaker PHP technology test page. It will keep a FMPHP connection open. This is not a result of just seeing long queries process, because the pages in question are fully loaded, so the CWP connections should close.


Any suggestions on what may be causing the issue?

I haven't updated to 12.0v4 on the server yet, as I am trying to co-ordinate this with various clients on that machine.Server_Issue.png
