Are you sure that you have set up ELinks correctly? That is, added:

	set protocol.file.cgi.policy = 1
	set protocol.file.cgi.path = "/path/to/cgi/dir"

to elinks.conf.

I've added a simple test script to the elinks-0.11 version that you
can try out to see what variables (including QUERY_STRING) that ELinks
sets up. I've attached it to this message.

Hope this helps.
