I have released version 2.08 of GBrowse, which addresses a bug that prevented searches on Bio::DB::GFF databases from matching on exact names. Instead, it always revered to the slower and less accurate keyword search. Also in this release is a tiny fix to prevent the spinner icon from staying on under some conditions. In addition, there is a new feature that lets you choose whether certain categories or subcategories are shown or collapsed when first loaded.
While debugging on Wormbase, I discovered that Apache's mod_fcgid has a problem with long environment values, and truncates them if they are over 127 characters. This caused problems on Wormbase, because it needs a PERL5LIB environment variable that is roughly twice as long as the maximum. I have found a fix for this problem and documented it here: http://gmod.org/wiki/Recompiling_mod_fcgid_to_avoid_truncated_Perl_library_paths
