Finally, I have an answer. Bottom line is that fcgi was broken on a2hosting.com. They have fixed it on at least their server a2s65. If it does now work for you I suggest putting up the standard Python test script there (you can find it in http://docs.python.org/howto/webservers.html) with a .htaccess file like this:

SetHandler fcgid-script Options +ExecCGI RewriteEngine On RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f RewriteRule ^(.*)$ scriptname.fcgi/$1 [QSA,L]

where "scriptname" is the name you used for the test script. If it does not work, bitch at them that their web server is improperly configured.
