Description of problem:
When I try to run even simple CGIs in a non ScriptAlias'ed directory, I get
"Premature end of script headers". I have ExecCGI specified for the
directory, and an AddHandler for cgi-scripts. I've included my httpd.conf
file and a simple cgi that won't work in my directory. This happened when
I upgraded from 7.0 to 7.1.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Configure apache to execute ".cgi" files and set the ExecCGI option for
a user directory.
2. Write a simple CGI to return Content-type header and some text.
3. Go to http://hostname.domain/~user/foo.cgi.
Actual Results: Apache returns a "403: Forbidden", despite all directories
in the path being mode 755 and the script itself being mode 755.
Expected Results: It should have printed the environment variables.
