Really? Hmm. Just the auth stuff, or all directives? Are you using
all-lowercase path names in your <Directory> entry? We really should call
os_canonical_filename() from <Directory> and <Files> as well (and put
REG_ICASE onto the *Match versions), so that people don't put uppercase
letters there and open their server up to large security holes.

However, it's entirely possible it just doesn't work :)
