The strange thing is, if I change the group file so that the line:

     adminjr: adminjr1 adminjr2

instead reads:

     adminj: adminjr1 adminjr2

then access is denied as expected.

In other words, a directory protected by Require group admin allows 
access to members of admin and adminjr but no other group.

If only LogLevel was more widely implemented...

The adminjr group is only defined once.

I have no idea how to proceed without playing with the Apache source, 
which I hoped to avoid.

Has no-one seen anything similar? Could it be a typo or oversight 
somewhere in my config?
