One does have to agree, and the source of the bug is simple:

The path info of the URL and the filename are assumed to be the same.
However, in this case (to use his example) the path info the URL is
/test-cgi, but the path info of the filename is /ivan/test-cgi. r->info is
set to /ivan/test-cgi, which is 13 characters long, r->uri is shorted by
13 characters, to /iva.

However, I can't seem to think of a fix. At least not offhand.
