Turns out that it was due to insufficient entropy in /dev/random,  
which makes digest secret creation really slow. So that would still be  
running when the test timed out, but it would finish before I looked  
at the error log. The solution seems to be to get apr to use /dev/ 
urandom instead of /dev/random.

At any rate, this is not a mod_perl issue, so you can ignore all of  
this stuff -- except that bit in which I said that all the tests  
passed. :-)
