Looking again at the documentation, I think this line should be 
"--with-suexec-caller=#99" (mind shell escaping when typing it; maybe \# 
actually) or "--with-suexec-caller=nobody". It wants a username, unlike 
the other two below.

Weird that suexec is just running with the original permissions. Have 
you looked in suexec_log?

Also, I believe this security model works best if you give Apache its 
own user and don't let anything else run for it. So its a little 
bothersome that you said "nobody", not "apache". You might consider 
changing that, though it's not what's causing your immediate problem.
