If a CGI emits a Location:-header on stdout, apache apparently guesses that
this particular program must have finished its work (at least without
persistent connections) and will exit as soon as possible, thereby in turn
terminating the program, which might or might not have had enough time
to dissassociate itself (fork()/ setsid()) from the running httpd-instance.

- wait at least until std(in|out|err) are explicitly closed
- document it
