Package: thttpd
Version: 2.23beta1-5
Severity: normal


When running CGI scripts, thttpd sends their error output to the client.

It could be handy for a CGI developper to have its error included in the
generated page, but on the other hand, this can cause problems with some
CGI scripts. For instance, in some cases, ikiwiki outputs an error
message containing a blank line before it sends its headers to stdout,
which confuses the client.
(see http://ikiwiki.info/bugs/CGI_problem_with_some_webservers/)

Maybe thttpd can redirect script error output to /dev/null by default,
rather than sending it to the client, in order to avoid such problems?
