What is the setting for CGIEXT in mm_cfg.py? If there's nothing there,
look in Defaults.py, but the default should be


If your cgi wrappers are actually named with a .cgi extension, CGIEXT
should be set to '.cgi', otherwise it should be the default null.

It is not at all clear to me why this fails with the admin CGI and not
with listinfo. If there is anything in the web server that rewrites
these, it shouldn't be doing that.
