I am trying to create a topic from CVS, and get the error shown below no matter what I do. The can copy the content of the variable in the config file pointing to the cvs onto the command line with cvs –d … and can access the repository without problems, so this seems to work.
Does anybody have an idea what could cause this problem?
Thanks a lot

For help, please send mail to the webmaster (firstname.lastname@example.org), giving this error message and the time and date of the error.
Grrrr - this is a Windows issue with Perl. Some things to try:
* Make sure you have configured Codestriker to use CGI, not mod_perl.
* Try using apache 1 instead of apache 2.
* Try using ActiveState Perl 5.6.X instead of 5.8.X.
* Use Linux instead of Windows.
Isn't there a way to patch the code and make it work with the existing perl/apache server? What exactly is the issue???
Its not a problem with the code - its a problem with the Windows implementation of Perl/Apache. It doesn't seem to happen on all window installations either.
