This might be a poor guess these days, but: "&>" is valid bash syntax,
but not valid POSIX syntax.  (I had to look it up to confirm what it
might mean.)  Are you sure that your CGI environment's shell is not
limiting you to POSIX compliance?

If you change it to >/tmp/test 2>&1 does it change behavior?

Long shot.
