--> Yes, I found a solution with the help of M. Haas and others. Since I 
have many links in a frame calling the same script but with different 
values, the calls are unique, but it helps to print the results from the 
scripts in unique files too, which is what I have done now. If I didn't 
automatically generate the contents of the files for the frame it would 
have been easier to have unique predefined file-names, but this was 
easily solved too.

--> I think there are predefined functions for handling cgi-errors that 
might help you to solve your problems.

Thanks for the respons!
