Hmmm... I haven't run into that... are you sure you're specifying the  
URL correctly?  Is the cgi-bin directory configured to be a cgi  
servable directory in your web server configuration?

I'll copy this to the local OSGEO mailing list, as there are lots more  
experienced mapserve people there, maybe one has a suggestion.  Beyond  
that, the mapserv forums are probably going to be more helpful than me  
on this question.
