Hi, thanks for your report.

I had a quick look at mod_auth_external code and, to my understanding, it
starts in your configuration the 'pwauth' script for every request, be it a
http/1.1 or h2 request. As far as I know, there is no principal difference how
this is invoked.

>From your log I can see that pwauth receives a SIGTERM. This is the timeout
handler that tries to stop pwauth when it takes too long. So, it seems that the
script, for some reason, is hanging, maybe trying to access PAM? 

If you run pwauth as a root user, and give its input username/password, do you
see timely behavior?
