Without the actual code, I can't really tell.  Is it a scope issue?
Are you setting the $filename inside the while loop?  If so, the
variable would go away at the last '}' at the end of the while loop.

If you wanted to post some more code, maybe people could get a better
feel for what you're trying to do...
