The issue with the mapfile in http://lists.maptools.org/pipermail/ms4w-
users/2012-February/001948.html is the default filename. For the CSV driver to 
create a single file, you need to change the filename to something ending with 
.csv (for example "default_outfile" "out.csv"), otherwise the CSV driver will 
create a directory, and when MapServer tries to read the filename, it is 
confused because it finds a directory, and not a file.
