No, I am guilty here, I just didn't understand what PATH_INFO was. I
just fixed the problem, and test-cgi seems much more happy:

http://mysite/cgi-bin/test-cgi/truc/muche
-> PATH_INFO = /truc/muche
http://mysite/cgi-bin/test-cgi/truc/muche
-> PATH_INFO = /

No, a bug, now fixed.

I have included below the full result of the new CgiResource, when
used to trigger test-cgi, under various circumstances. If ever you
think some of the settings are buggy, let me know.

Thanks for the feedback,
Anselm.
