It is not possible to send a 401 - Authentication header without receiving
an 500 Errorcode from the server.

A snip of a script:

  print "HTTP/1.0 401 Authentification\n";
  print "WWW-Authenticate: Basic\n\n";

A snip of error-log:

[error] malformed header from script. 
Bad header=HTTP/1.0 401 Authentification: /usr/local/httpd/cgi-bin/autho.pl
