test.cgi gets executed successfully from suexec (suexec log) but exits
or otherwise closes its socket before responding (error log).

Perhaps you could see what happens test.cgi's brief life by running
strace -f against the mod_fcgid process manager daemon?  (the process
manager is probably the httpd child process with the lowest numbered
process id; look in the strace output for the exec of test.cgi, and
see what happens in that process)
