I guess that exception is coming from the fact that I am running  
dispatch.fcgi from the command-line.  Scott Laird suggested I try  
this to see what exceptions could be hanging the dispatch.fcgi process.

I'm on a shared host (DreamHost) and haven't been able to figure out  
what version of apache they are using.  My Typo version comes from  
SVN, from about 8-9 days ago.
