Subject: WWW Form Bug Report: "Problems w/.htaccess in cgi-bin directory." on Solaris 2.x

Operating system: Solaris 2.x, version: 
Version of Apache Used: 1.0.5
Extra Modules used: (Standard modules)
URL exhibiting problem: 

Basically, a .htaccess file which works fine in
user space (document area) doesn't seem to work
at all in the cgi-bin directory. I've configured
the cgi-bin directory in access.conf with the
AllowOverrides All, but that doesn't help either.

When given the .htaccess file below, authorization
*always* fails, with no information at all in
the error log. It's either a bug that the .htaccess
file isn't working in the cgi-bin directory, or
(and?) it's a bug that authorization failures
don't seem to be logged anywhere.

Here's the .htaccess file. It works fine in a
document directory, just not in the cgi-bin
directory :

Options All
AuthType Basic
AuthName Sprawl Production Page
AuthUserFile /usr/local/etc/security/production.passwd
AuthGroupFile /usr/local/etc/security/
<Limit GET>
  require user mowgli visiting
			Thanks, <Mowgli>

PS. This occurs both under Linux & Solaris, and
    also occurred when someone moved their .6x?
    Apache setup to the new version, 1.0.5.
