Well, not convinced. I don't see how "server.cgi" looks more like a URI 
than "events". Actually, it looks like a filename to me.

In doubt, put in something with an absolute path, or even a full URI.

That may be true, but in this particular case is totally useless as it 
doesn't matter whether it's 1000000 or 1024^2, but it *does* distract.
