Even though the docs say:


[In order for any reply to be added to the PR database, ]
[you need to include <apbugs@Apache.Org> in the Cc line ]
[and leave the subject line UNCHANGED.  This is not done]
[automatically because of the potential for mail loops. ]

>>IdentityCheck directive
>>Syntax: IdentityCheck boolean
>>Default: IdentityCheck off
>>Context: server config, virtual host, directory, .htaccess
>>Status: core

I can use the directive only inside a <Directory >...</Directory> section 
of access.conf. Here is what I get if I try using the directive inside the
following .htaccess file:

AddType application/x-httpd-cgi CGI
IdentityCheck On

[Thu Feb  5 13:03:10 1998] [alert] (2)No such file or directory: 
 [...] public_html/ident/.htaccess: IdentityCheck not allowed here
Now, it seems the directory got enough privileges to add the cgi type, but
not to enable an ident... At the very least, I feel this as a shortcoming
in the docs, which states to the opposite of what happens, or refrains from
stating which options you need to be able to enable IdentityCheck on a 
granular, per-directory way.
