Excellent problem report.  Thanks for all the details.

Here's where I'd start:

1. Put the full unix paths to htaccess_user and htaccess_group.  Otherwise
apache assumes they are in the ServerRoot.

2. Don't use <Limit POST>.  If you want to limit everything, then just
leave out the <Limit POST> and </Limit> lines.  If you want to limit
everything but regular access, use <LimitExcept GET>.
