I just tested it and found no problem (well, there does seem to be a memory
leak of 8K having to do with the 403 response, but nothing fatal).

Are you also using ErrorDocument 403 some_script?

The only change that would impact the environment is the addition to
error-notes of the 403 log entry, which might be the last straw for
your system if it already has a huge environment allocation and it
then attempts to invoke a CGI.  That's all I could think of, anyway.

Something repeatable like this should be stepped through with a
debugger to find out what the exact problem might be.
