My problem's analysis was totally wrong, moreover I misinterpreted the errors.
The program communicates with MySQL through a simple MySQL extension that I
wrote. The connection to db failed, due to the incorrect setting of an environment 
variable (MYSQL_UNIX_PORT), the error was not trapped (actually I don't know
why) and it propagated producing those misleading error messages.
When running as CGI with Apache, the same problem doesn't reveal because the
program is executed with a different environment.
