What steps will reproduce the problem?
1. Setup an Information Source + FastCGI
2. Add new Handler File Extension php and let it handle via FastCGI
3. Request a non existing File with the Extension from Point #​2 (Github: #82)

What is the expected output? What do you see instead?
Looks like it seems it doesn't do a file exists check when fastcgi is
configured. I expect a 404 Error from the Webserver.
What I get instead is the non existing file passed through the fastcgi
programme as parameter.

What version of the product are you using? On what operating system?
cherokee 0.99.15
CentOS 5.3 x86_64

I thought the idea actually was that there would be a button that actually verified
the file existed? At least a feature was introduced to do the opposite (allow a file
to go to fastcgi, which was not available for the webserver).

But you can always configure the extension rule with an and function, that requires
the file to exist.

Well I tell here only how Apache + mod_fcgi does handle it ;)

r3264 has fixed it.
If you have the chance, please confirm whether the problem is also fixed at your end.

Thanks for reporting!
