The CgiEnvironment calls exit() if the length of the submitted data exceeds CGICC_MAX_CONTENTLENGTH (if it exists).

A shared library should not call exit, and should give the calling program a chance to act on the error instead of being terminated.

Maybe throwing an exception would be a better option here?
