After some debate, we established that my advice on that point was a red
herring - the order of Directory containers doesn't matter. So no

Joshua noticed you have a rather exotic "Options SymLinksIfOwnerMatch" -
clearly you must have a good reason for applying such an unusual option.
Could it be that the files which don't execute are nit really in the
"ExecCGI" directory but are really at the end of a symbolic link? If so,
I'm not sure what'll happen but I wouldn't be suprised if there was

Could you post the two directory blocks again and describe a little what
is going on (I believe you had programs which weren't executing - but
were you gettin 403, or 404 or a list of source-code?).
