Yes, I know this. If I run the script from the console, after printing
a bunch of 'DEBUG: ... ' messages, the lines:
are printed. If 'cgi_header' is from boa, then I must assume those
debug messages are getting sent to STDOUT in the cgi call (which would
cause this error). However, I can't find out where those DEBUG messages
are being instantiated. I would assume the DEBUG messages are supposed
to be sent to STDERR (or not printed at all if called from a cgi).
Also, it's working for others, that's why I was trying to find out if
this might be related to boa somehow.
