[sorry, wrong alt key]

... if you confuse <Location />  (the root of the web server's URI space) with
<Directory /> (the root of the filesystem.)

They are cousins, but they do entirely different things.  This has always been so.

Try in 1.3...

DocumentRoot /www/pages
<Directory /www/pages>
order allow,deny
allow from all
</Directory>
<Location />
order deny,allow
deny from all
</Location>

What do you observe?
