[Techtalk] Apache: Seems simple???

I have what should be a very simple Apache configuration issue. I 
have a ScriptAlias directory that I have been using for ever. I want 
to add a cgi script (index.cgi) to it, so that if someone goes to 
http://www.some.url/xina/ (xina is the name of the script aliased 
directory) index.cgi will be executed.

In my httpd.conf, there is a DirectoryIndexes directory that includes index.cgi

In addition, just for overkill, I added a DirectoryIndexes directive 
to my <Directory /foo/bar> </Directory> inside my virtual host 

However, I get a 403 error (forbidden) when I try 
http://www.some.url/xina, but http://www.some.url/xina/index.cgi 
works just fine.

What am I missing?
