My guess is you are running an older version of that displays 
that under some cases.  perldoc CGI should describe that.

What's this show on your machine?

$ perl -MCGI -le 'print $CGI::VERSION'

I'd upgrade as the first option.  Otherwise, there used to be a -nodebug 
option when loading, but that does not seem to be supported since 
version 2.57:

Version 2.57

   1. Added -debug pragma and turned off auto reading of STDIN.

If your version is that old then (beside upgrading) you might look at 
the code and see if you can set something like CGI::DEBUG = 0.  I 
just don't know if that is correct or not as I don't have a version that
