Okay, well that is definitely an Apache error message. Start looking there
-- access logs, error logs, etc.

No, it doesn't seem to be Interchange's fault to me. At least, IC is not
outputting that particular error message.

Look over your Apache logs. Does this error occur only on the same
links? Does it always say 'cgi-bin/construct/index.html'? This could
quite possibly be an Apache configuration error, but as for a reason why it
seems to be sporadic, I don't know. Double check your permissions (since
it is a permission error). Who is the owner/group of the construct demo's
index.html? What is your umask -- is it possible that it breaks only when
someone/something accesses that file? Does just /cgi-bin/construct/ work
