All environment variables used for cgi-bin (e.g. PATH_INFO, REMOTE_ADR,
QUERY_STRING) are buggy. They are only 4 bytes big, seems to be a pointer
instead of the environment variable and its content.
Create a cgi-bin batch file:

set hello=abcd

and call it ! You can see, "set" is working correct, because hello is inserted.
But all other variables are buggy...
