Win 98, VC 6.0, gcc 2.952
I have a *very* basic CGI script written in C:
#include <stdio.h>

int main(void)
        printf("Content-Type: text/plain\n\n");
        return 0;
The problem is very simple - if I compile this with VC 6.0, and then attempt to execute the
script via a web browser/apache, it works, and gives the expected output (Wibble! :o). However,
if I compile it using gcc, it gives an internal server error, and the logfiles report "Premature
end of script headers". 

I would think that the executable produced by gcc was faulty, but executing both programs
from the command-line gives correct results (the http header, wibble), and it is only when
attempting to use the gcc compiled program through apache that it fails.
