Could you change the error message to give the full path maybe? Its
not hard to find but not obvious.
Is the problem with the CGI scripts known? The webpage looks in
/Bugs/Bugs/cgi/... The configure www section could mention allowing
cgi and changing the ScriptAlias to match (for apache).
The crontab example could say that its a user crontab file or include
I'm kind of surprised that debbugs doesn't create its own user (or
asks for one per debconf or in the config file).
