might fix the errors. Suffice to say, it creates a different class of deal-breaking error instead.
This is purely an annoyance; I can live with apache's error logging, but surely there is a way to fix this? Google has not been helpful so far. My guess is that using apple_auth_module somehow tangles me with apple server's user space, which I don't use.

Have you tried turning on 'allow all overrides' in Server Admin?
(Remembering that this will potentially kill your hand edits which you may have to replace).
