I found that other person, and he is us.  I played around some more,
and thought -- just to not leave any stone unturned -- that I should
try it on a different web server.  So, I moved my CGIs over, and lo
and behold, the strict version suddenly works! 

I therefore would like to apologize for any insinuation I may have
perpetrated that could be taken to imply that Network.CGI possesses
any feature of less than desirable merit¹.  As usual, it's some C
program that is to blame :-) 


¹ I'm tempted to suggest that "output" should be strict in its
argument, but I shall refrain.
If I haven't seen further, it is by standing in the footprints of giants
