I can't see anything wrong with your config, and I have just tried
something similar here and it seems to work.

Having looked at the code, one small subtlety is that if there is a
repository-specific readme configuration it overrides the default list
rather than appending to it, but if you don't have any repository
configuration then the list in cgitrc should be used.
