 * 	I *beleive* that there is a problem with the wildcard matching
 * in the directory directive, but I haven't looked at it in depth
 * personally. (if you have two sets of per-dir configuration sets,
 * /usr/docs/set1/* and /usr/docs/set1/sub/* the stuff within
 * /usr/docs/set1/sub* matches /usr/docs/set1/* and the
 * /usr/docs/set1/* configuriaton applies not the /usr/docs/set1/sub/*
 * stuff... again, I'm not completely familiar with this problem, but
 * that seems to be the case.)

Only if the two settings are conflicting. If you say "for
/usr/docs/set1/*, turn on CGI" and then say "for /usr/docs/set1/sub/*,
turn off CGI" the first setting will apply. Similarly, if you have two
authentications, and the first says "don't let Fred in" and the second
says "let Fred in", it will not let him in.
