Yeah, the user and group are totally valid. It is very frustrating :(

The machines have many virtual hosts and all of them are set to the user and 
group of the particular owner of the vhost with:

User their-username
Group their-groupname

in their section of httpd.conf

It happens randomly for different users but in every case the user and group 
are totally valid.

When I check the logs the problem started only after the upgrade to 1.3.27

Very, very frustrating...
