Funky. I would imagine this wouldn't help performance that much,
though, since the overhead of starting the whole new process would
dwarf any system call overhead savings. But I have no data to back
that up.

Attach a debugger to the processes to see what calls they are hanging
or dying in.

I believe that Netscape is seeing the connection close before
receiving any headers, which would be consistent with the CGI's pipes
not being set up correctly.
