Basic question: Rev CGI and executing Rev scripts from bash

working as cgi will also yield this error but apache will treat it as  
a malformed http header and ignore it.

This is due to missing/wrong link for the UI graphic libraries. Due  
to the nature of the linux dynamic loader and the way Rev was built,  
it will look for those libraries and bind itself to them if if you're  
not using any graphical interface. There are two work arounds. You  
can set the enviromental variables REV_GDK_PATH, REV_GOBJECT_PATH and  
REV_GTK_PATH (not sure about the last one), to empty. For doing that,  
your cgi will be called not by apache but by a loader bash script  
that sets this variables then call the CGI, this is cumbersome. Or if  
it's working for you, you can simply ignore it.
