As an aside, and I may be wrong here, but isn't the max packets allowed 
a MySQL setting? Changing that isn't going to affect how much memory PHP 
has available to it.

I think the setting you're looking for is: 'memory_limit' in ye olde 
php.ini I know this doesn't answer your question, sorry about that, 
thought it was worth mentioning though. :)

Kind Regards,
