Do you really have a /cgi-bin/ directory off the root of your
filesystem?  I doubt it.  You probably want <Directory
/usr/local/apache2/cgi-bin/higui> or something like that.

Very confusing question.  I really don't understand what you want.

CGI scripts are not run on the client, they are run on the server. 
The decision on whether to serve from the cache or not is made by the
client.  The server can simply give the client advice.

Perhaps if you gave an example of a specific URL that you are having a
problem with and explain how you would like it to behave and how it is
actually behaving.
