Yes, it appears you have found a bug.  Please report it to the apache bug
database.  A couple comments:

1. Please report the truly minimal config needed to generate the problem.
Yours has a whole bunch of other complications in it.  See below.

2. It appears only to happen with <DirectoryMatch> and not <Directory>.
You should mention that in your bug report.

An example of a smaller config that shows the problem:
./configure --prefix=/home/slive/ap243
make install
and replace the httpd.conf with

ServerRoot "/home/slive/ap243"

Listen 8899
UseCanonicalName Off
DocumentRoot "/home/slive/ap243/htdocs"

<Directory "/home/slive/ap243/htdocs">
    Options Indexes FollowSymLinks

DirectoryIndex index.html index.html.var

Alias /manual "/home/slive/ap243/manual"

AddLanguage en en
AddLanguage ja ja
AddLanguage fr fr
AddLanguage ko ko

<Directory "/home/slive/ap243/manual">
    Options Indexes FollowSymLinks MultiViews IncludesNoExec
    AddOutputFilter Includes html
    AllowOverride None
    Order allow,deny
    Allow from all

<DirectoryMatch /home/slive/ap243/manual>

This config is currently running at
but It won't remain indefinitely.
