With a hint from Gary, we found that the code (applet or the gliserver.pl
script) is looking for dictionary_xx_xx.class files in our cgi-bin directory
instead of in the gli/classes directory where they are installed.

We are both running RedHatES 4 with Apache 2.xxx.

Can someone fix the code or tell us where to fix it?

Thanks very much.
