Okay, more specifically: CGI scripts which include a call to the shell are
breaking.  For example, a line in a perl script which is causing problems:

  @ls = `ls /export/pub/machines/icons/logo/MM-logo*`;

Commenting out that line causes the script to run fine.  Leaving it in
causes a hang (whether it's accessed directly or through SSI) and hitting
"stop" in the browser turns the CGI into a zombie.  

Any ideas?
