Did you find a solution to this?
Are you running nuke (or your domain) as php-cgi?
I am having similar issues. FYI: The (chatserv security) patched 7.x 7.4 does not run as php-cgi, the "out of the box" version should.
I need to run as php-cgi so I can run Gallery as a module (that's the only way it will work because of basedir restrictions). Everything worked great until I applied the patches. I have a message into support about this.
