I thought the issue had come up in the past, and had been corrected (but
then, I've been lax in updating my personal copy of the Validator - my old
version was from back around 1.22).

ARGHHH!  I knew I'd get in trouble for opening my big mouth!

Yep, tried all the more popular variations -- "check.cgi", "", and
plain old "check"...  As long as Apache has the ScriptAlias set to point to
an existing file, the script will run.

 --> ScriptAlias /check

I mainly used "check.cgi" to distinguish my (modified) copy from the W3C
original.  I thought that perhaps ActiveState's isntallation had not
associated ".pl" files with the Perl executable, but that was not the case.
I just not that adept at debugging Perl, so I can't point to something in
the script that would cause the "Bad file descriptor" that Björn Höhrmann
commented about (other than it happens when nsgmls is called).
