I'm not sure if ScriptAlias is supposed to work with OrdinaryFileList or
not, Kevin Walsh may be able to answer that.  However a work around may
be to move your cgi-bin directory to: /var/cgi-bin, point the script
alias there and then remove the cgi-bin from the OrdinaryFileList.  Or
create a /var/www/html directory, put all your html files there, then
create a /var/www/cgi-bin, put your cgi files there, point ScriptAlias
at /var/www/cgi-bin and remove cgi-bin from OrdinaryFileList.

Good luck,
