I agree that it isn't really the responsibility of CGI::Application to
account for these problems. But since this has caused a user some
problems, I think it makes sense to put something in the test suite
that at least notifies the user that their setup will not work
properly with CGI::Application or at least it will not work properly
with the test suite.
I would leave the existing test as is so they do fail in this
situation, but add an extra test that checks for the value of
$CGI::HEADERS_ONCE, and if it is set, fail the test and display a
warning message about why this could be an issue.
We could check for $CGI::HEADERS_ONCE and skip the problem tests, but
I think that would hide the underlying problem and potentially cause
more issues for the user.
