Apache core dump when using LDAP authentification.

I can confirm that this bug exists in 2.0.49 (with or without Brad Nicholes
latest changes to squash the authenticated LDAP access issues).  I have not
tried 2.1.0 anything.

Also, the cache overflow crash is still present in 2.0.49.  [I forget the bug #,
but when more distinct users authenticate against Apache than what you've sized
the cache for the child process will die.  If this does not happen on cache size
+ 1 users it always happens by cache size + 5 or so users.]

Squashing these 2 issues would do wonders for LDAP authentication via Apache and
would, in my opinion, justify moving this module out of experimental.  Both of
these issues are pretty severe, however.  They don't preclude use of the module
for LDAP authentication, but they require some hefty workarounds (disabling
cache sharing between processes and sizing the LDAP cache to hold your entire
user population -- which may be excessive).
