Hi, list.
I wanted to set up mapserver (ms4w) to work in FastCGI mode with Oracle
database. Did everything as desribed in the readme_install guide and got the
same error (Apache logs: "mod_fcgid: get overlap result error").
Later, looking deeper into the problem, found that mapserv.exe is looking
for a file OCI.DLL in all PATH directories, and if in does not find it, it
crashes, and apache server writes the known string into logs.
So, the problem was resolved through adding the directory, containing
oci.dll (usualy ORACLE_HOME/BIN) into PATH of the fcgi module something like
<IfModule fcgid_module>
    DefaultInitEnv PATH

Now everything seems to work well :-)

hope this can be useful.
