I saw tests failing due to this test bug on Solaris 10 Sparc.

I don't see the tests failing before this change to the test on other 
platforms, but those are failing now :(

Reason: the stderr expected to get logged during the test to the 
ScriptLog does not show up in the cgi log file for those other platforms 
and instead goes to the normal error log - like it was normal until 
2.4.10. On Solaris 10 Sparc the stderr is written to the ScriptLog by 
calling log_script_err() in cgi_bucket_read() (inside mod_cgi.c). On the 
other platforms, this piece of code isn't hit and instead the STDERR 
goes to the normal error log.

Before change r1651085 to mod_cgi.c it always went to the normal error 
log. So it seems r1651085 isn't complete, but before 2.4.11 it was even 
more incomplete, so not really a regression.

I'll take a bit of sleep now and will see, whether I can narrow down the 
reason for this platform specific difference later.
