Linux, Kernel 2.0.19. GCC 2.7.1
>Description:
When a cgi-script want to print itself his own header (for sending a 
redirection to the browser for example), he should print the line :
Status: 302 but instead a status of 200 is checked !
(The comments in the codes and the doc say that the script should use a
status of 302).

else if (location && r->status == 200) {
    /* XX Note that if a script wants to produce its own Redirect
     * body, it now has to explicitly *say* "Status: 302"
     */
     return REDIRECT;
}
>How-To-Repeat:
Use your sample script from the how-to doc for redirecting a URL by
using a cgi-script. :)
>Fix:
Choose if it shoudl be a status of 200 or 302 and either change the example/comments
or change the test in mod_cgi.c
