Guess I was in a bit of a hurry with this message.

The problems are:
If mod_log_agent or mod_log_referer are configured into the 
server, they will open and log information regardless of
whether they are configured into the config files. mod_cookies
would silently fail if it could not open the configured log

The result of the patch:
Turning off these modules is as simple as leaving them out of
the config file.
