Yes, very odd, indeed.

Well, the access.log contains just one enty per cgi-request: - - [08/Aug/2007:11:08:32 +0200] "GET /project/bar
HTTP/1.1" 200

I tcpdumped the connection and I only see two GET messages for each
cgi-request (which contain the requested url):
# tcpdump -i lo -A -s 0 -vv  | grep GET
...(...(GET HTTP/1.1
...4...4GET /project/bar HTTP/1.1
