Well, Debian (and thus Ubuntu) is always a bit behind due to their
longer release and "stabilizing" cycle.

Well, that "do cgi first, then wsgi" in the 1.7/1.8 docs is just a
recommendation to (maybe) make it easier. If you can get it right on
wsgi easily, you don't need to do it the cgi way first.

If you run a farm configuration (== you have a farmconfig.py) and the
regexes in there do not match your URL.

Please note that regexes have changed a bit in 1.9 - they include the
protocol etc. now, see also the 1.9 sample configs we supply.

/me has to add some HINT: to docs/CHANGES for that.

There is a typo, it should read .*$ at the end (as you see it in the
examples in the lines above).

Don't forget to enable TextChas in case you run this on the internet.
