Fwd: source-filter isn't getting applied

Great, this helped me debug the error. I looked at the part of the strace
where it was reading the /etc/cgitrc, and it looked like it was only
reading the first setting, even though the following settings are getting
applied. I'm not sure exactly why yet, but putting the source-filter
setting at the top of the /etc/cgitrc fixes the problem, and my source
files are now highlighted.

Now I'm dealing with the same problem with the about-filter, because
putting that setting at the top isn't giving me markdown highlighting.
