I had two kind responses, one shrewd one from Tom Short noting that 
you can have problems with error messages in angle brackets if you're 
looking at HTML sink output.  Noted but that wasn't the problem.  He 
and David Firth, who tells me there's a new version, 0.70, of 
CGIwithR uploaded to CRAN which helps 2.1.0 compatibility, both tell 
me I'll have to use ssh and hack things on the server from there.  
True indeed and I think one message is that you have to be prepared 
to work out how to get your data into the program directly if 
bypassing form input.  I've debugged things now and the program runs.

Now some more questions separately for healthy archiving!

Thanks all,
