I have also tried this, but to no avail. I still get an internal server
error and a message about a timeout in the logs.

I believe I have done this part correctly, though. Here's a sample
session when starting the program from the commandline as you suggest:

    $ ./counter.fcgi
    ./counter.fcgi (FCGI) listening on port 1200.

    $ lynx

This waits indefinately.  A timeout is also what is reported by

Maybe I am missing something very obviuos.  Often that is a reason for
