Prior to adding suexec into apache's sbin (/www/www/apache/sbin on my system),
I was able to run scripts (as the server's owner) with the "AddHandler 
cgi-script .cgi" directive. The introduction of suexec has caused any attempt
to run a cgi script from a user's directory to dump core. From what I could see
from gdb's backtrace:

Core was generated by `httpd'.
Program terminated with signal 6, Abort.
Reading symbols from /usr/lib/libc.so.1...backdone.
#0  0xfae25d4 in _kill () at kill.s:15

(gdb) quit

The error occurred after the mod_cgi call to util_script.c's call_exec
function. I've checked and re-checked the configuration of suexec and
it all appears to be in order. If you like, I'd be happy to send you
my configuration files for the server and suexec.h.

Here's what the logs had to say. The cgi_log file named in suexec.h was
never created/written to.

The script testksh.cgi (that I believe is never called):
echo "Content-type: text/html"
echo "<html><h1>Working?</h1></html>"
This is an internal server, so I can't give you a usable URL. The only
response you would get would be an "Internal Error" message, in any event.
