I'm not sure that this is a Proxy problem... It looks like your CGI got stuck and never returned
anything. Start at the other end of the stream:

- on the server, does the CGi execute from the command line?
- does it produce a valid CGI header?
- does it work in a browser connected directly (not via proxy) to
- when you hit it via the proxy, what do you see in the access and error log in
