I don't recall the apache process crashing -- but some
investigation revealed that pam_pwdb.so wouldn't do the
authentication on a system with shadow passwords unless
it was called with root privs.  Apache doesn't do this.
(as opposed to login/imapd/pop3d/ftpd/etc...).

Can anybody back me up on this?
