This is really the main problem. Until you fix this, I wouldn't go
bug-hunting... I'm not sure how apache actually checks the passwords,
but presumably it fires up a shell which runs a crypt() function - this
could cause the 500 - any reason to suspect this might not be working
(e.g. problem with libs)?. Try switching on ScriptLog and see if you get
more information...
