In my opinion, that is a bug. Apache should be passing the charset
specified by your CGI script in the Content-Type line. A quick look at
the code suggests it was designed to work that way, but I just tested
it and indeed something ate the charset. I can't figure out what. I
suggest filing a bug report.
