I get the same results without any of my own authN code.  It seems to be
some really basic issue with mod_python or my use of it.

unix$ tail -7 httpd.conf
<Location /test>
    PythonDebug On
    SetHandler mod_python

    PythonHeaderParserHandler Example::handler
    PythonPath "sys.path + ['/home/dgc/lib/python']"

unix$ cat Example.py
from mod_python import apache

def handler(req):
        return apache.DECLINED

unix$ cat <<XXX >/httpd/test/env.cgi

import sys
import os
import cgi
import cgitb

def main():
    print "Content-Type: text/html"

if not os.isatty(0):
if __name__ == "__main__":

Loading http://server/test/env.cgi in a browser dumps the text of the
CGI script to me as Content-type: text/html.  Without the <Location/>
block, it works as a CGI should.
