Synopsis: Apache being to trigger happy with respect to CGI programs

I'm not an expert in this (you should check one of the
CGI FAQs for details), but I believe the correct way
to handle this situation is to fork a subprocess from
your CGI before you send the Location: header,
and make sure to close stdin/stdout/etc on the
forked process.  Apache can't count on CGI processes
cleaning up after themselves.

Thanks for using Apache!
