Thank you. I was using http://<server>/cgi-bin/darcs.cgi which produces the
error I mentioned. It works fine when I put the repository on the end. It
would be nice if the script displayed a list of repos, when invoked without
a repo name, instead of failing.

I am pleased to say the Perl CGI script is much faster, so long as I do not
choose "annotate" (darcs annotate runs very slowly on this repo). But I am
puzzled why the "tag" drop-down list is empty (only shows "none"), since the
repo contains a number of tags that were converted from CVS tags.
