I might be wrong on this one, but I've always been told to never use die()
in Drupal, since it stops code from the footer to be run. I recommend you to
use  <http://api.drupal.org/api/5/function/drupal_set_header>
http://api.drupal.org/api/5/function/drupal_set_header to override drupal's

OT: Should we write a patch to remove that die()-call?
