Exactly as it says, /cgi-bin/a is not a plain file (it's a directory!)
and CGIHTTPServer.py is written to support plain files right under
cgi-bin only.  See the parsing in function run_cgi around line 100
and following of that file in your Python library directory.  If you
don't like the way it parses things, it ain't hard to modify...
