I *know* this should work. That's not the only Apache I have running,
but it is the only one that gives me trouble (all are Apache 1.1.1 on
2.1.5R machines).

Of course. If it wasn't, I would have gotten "You don't have permission
to execute the script on this server" or something like that (can't
remember the exact message).

It's a shell script, and it wil run if you just say test-cgi (it has
#!/bin/sh at its beginning). The same would happen with perl though. As
I said before, it doesn't happen with compiled programs, but if I write
a C program that exec's a script - it will happen when I try to exec
from the program the script (the execle call doesn't fail though. at
least it doesn't return).
