I've poked around in httpd_config and found the reason why modules don't
become a chance to initialise their sever config for virtual host sections.
Because while for the main server create_server_config() is used, the virtual
servers just use create_empty_config() and then later fill in particular
configs just for existing directives. 

I'm not sure if the following change is really a good one, but it would solve
the problem, I think and would avoid confusion in the future. On the other
hand it forces a little bit too much config-initialisation on startup.  But
its on startup so we could accept this. Is this again totally wrong or perhaps
a possibility?
