Maybe the cause is a simple buffer overflow in DeleGate which parses
the output from CGI program.

Since no significant fix around CGI is not done after 7.7.1, the bug
seems to remain in the current version.

 |04/16 18:05:42.30 [2861] 2+1: *** /upload.cgi => file://localhost/home/delegate/http/upload.cgi ***

The problem might be caused by the output (which contains something
unexpected by DeleGate) from the CGI program (upload.cgi).

Could you show me the stack trace of the core file at the directory?
It will be got like follows:
 % gdb /path/of/your/delegated /home/delegate/work/7778/*core 
 (gdb) where
 (gdb) quit
