Don't _ever_ do that! With CMD.EXE, or a Perl binary, or whatever, in the
CGI directory, you've just given the world the ability to execute arbitrary
commands on your web server!

I don't have a suitable Windoze box handy for testing, but I'll have a look
at the changes between versions and try to figure out why it broke.

In the mean time, get rid of that cmd.exe copy!
