Ok, i finally found the solution: it was a problem with the owner-rights
of the file and the fact that http://localhost/.. didnt work instead of
testing it directly with my own IP.
Thats why it prevented a cgi-script to show the results of the
get/post-action in a html-file in the browser.
Thats not really something coping with hdig but just to complete this
problem in case someone will have to deal with this same kind of fuss
some other day...
Anyway many thanks again to Geoff, Adam, ATLE for sharing their brain
cells to this fussy matter..:-)
