When you're testing the two AuthBasicProvider's, are they both hitting
their respective "user not found" case?

For LDAP, this is normally not being able to convert the basic auth
username into a DN on the LDAP server.

If for some reason your testcase has some kind of later authn failure,
it might result in the modules telling mod_auth_basic "yes, i'm
supposed to handle this but it's a bad userid".
