I didn't create that file, I'm assuming the sympa installer renamed that file
for me. From the file creation dates, it looks like wwsympa.bak.fcgi is the
new fcgi script and that wwsympa.fcgi is the older fcgi script

-rwxr-xr-x 1 sympa sympa 298097 2006-04-28 12:55 wwsympa.bak.fcgi
-rwsr-xr-x 1 sympa sympa 7145 2006-03-01 11:25 wwsympa.fcgi

I moved the older fcgi script out of our cgi-bin/sympa directory and rename
wwsympa.bak.fcgi to wwsympa.fcgi.

Our apache error log now looks like

[Fri Apr 28 13:32:42 2006] [error] [client] Undefined subroutine
&Language::LoadLang called at /usr/lib/cgi-bin/sympa/wwsympa.fcgi line 372,
<CONF> line 728.
[Fri Apr 28 13:32:42 2006] [error] [client] Premature end of
script headers: wwsympa.fcgi

I check line 372 of the wwsympa.fcgi script-


I know that msgcat is deprecated, and that the new sympa.conf param is
'localedir'. I tried substituting 'localedir' for 'msgcat', but I get the
same error.
