Nginx securiy problem

Yah. I tried thttpd but it crashed on me randomly. Apache is stable.  
Works good enough. And the machines I use it on have more than enough  

It'd be nice if nginx could do cgi :p I have to support mailman and  
bugzilla. Both seem archaic. One reason I am actually starting a php  
mailman replacement since there are literally only 3-4 mail list  
managers out there. None are simple to use or configure either. If  
anyone wants to help contribute to this effort... Email me off list.  
I'm hiring a coder to do it for me. Then I will open source it like  
wordpress and such.
