Interesting, maybe I have always missunderstood these (suexec) conditions (12 and 13 I think).

    Is the directory within the Apache webspace? 
  1.. If the request is for a regular portion of the server, is the requested directory within
suEXEC's document root? If the request is for a UserDir, is the requested directory within
the directory configured as suEXEC's userdir (see suEXEC's configuration options)? 

  2.. Is the directory NOT writable by anyone else? 
  We don't want to open up the directory to others; only the owner user may be able to alter
this directories contents.
