You should try Nick's suggestions for debugging (varying the parameters) 
first. But just in case: I recall that a handful of memory allocation 
bugs in authn_dbd (and related code) were fixed earlier this year.

My experience was with SQLite, not PostgreSQL, but we also saw 
nondeterministic authn failures that went away after we cherry-picked 
several patches from the latest httpd version. If you have the means to 
update versions easily (or if you just get desperate enough), you might 
check to see if that fixes your problem.

Good luck,
