is there anything in the web server error log?

If there's a speedy_backend process running on the server, try killing
it and see if the first error you get after that is something
different. Using speedy often hides the real problem on consecutive
runs of the CGI, because it skips the initialization code.

One more thing that you could check is whether the user the web server 
runs as has read permission on the config file (though I'd expect that
to be reported more clearly).
