As far as I can imagine I cannot see how a module can interfere with the 
directives of another module (unless it handles the same directives).

What happens if you disable your merge hook? Can you post your merge 
callback here?

These directives belong to the "core" module. So, in theory, you should

core_conf_object = ap_get_module_config(conf_vector, &core_module);

and then read the values from the core_conf_object.

In practice however you can't do that because neither the address of 
core_module nor the definition of the core_conf structure are available 
to third-party modules.
