[Catalyst] problem with Apache and FastCGI

Hi Robert,

Thanks for your help!
I'm logged onto the server as the user that runs Apache and I can run 
the fcgi start-up script (so I can execute the shebang line) as that 
user, so Apache should be able to run it, as far as I can see. Right now 
I don't know where to start looking for the problem.  BTW: I can also 
verify in "ps" that apache is actually running as that user I log in 
with in.
