Premature end of script headers usually means that htsearch died before
outputing its "Content-type: text/html" header. Check the server error
log to see if it gave any error messages at that time. If that doesn't
help, try running htsearch in interactive mode, from the command line,
to see if it dies that way too. If you get a core dump, get a stack
backtrace from the debugger to see where it's dying.
