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.
