Problems with rt3 and FastCGI

I am trying to get RT to use FastCGI, but I get error messages from

I searched the archives, but did not find any answers.

SuSE 9.0
Apache 1.3
Request Tracker 3.0.8
Perl v5.8.1

I do not use a virtual host.

This is the error message I get:
[warn] FastCGI: server “/opt/rt3/bin/mason_handler.fcgi” (pid 32525)
terminated by calling exit with status ‘9’

If I run the mason_handler.fcgi script by hand, it gives no errors

What can be wrong?
What does exit code 9 mean?
