Ouch.  So when people have been adding comments currently with no
preceding colon, mod_authz_dbm would interpret that as a group? 
Likely the group wouldn't match, but still...

Sounds like the comments parameter shouldn't allow embedded colon (to
avoid misinterpretation), and there should also be a group parameter
(-g group1[,group2]...), and the comment handling should put the
comment in the right place? (i.e., leave group field properly set to
empty or a list of groups)
