Segfaults all over the place!

Ya. happens to 1 out of the 3 servers I upgraded, the fact that password protected directories stopped working. I already noticed that the seg faults happens when a password directory is called. My hypothesis is that whenever Apache tries to authenticate, something crashed the thread and therefore nothing gets served (and the seg fault appears in the logs) The only thing that works was downgrading apache. I happen to have a buildapache from 2 weeks ago. (bless my whatever there is!)

I held back on upgrading the rest.

All the servers were identical. The segfaults are ... "dirty" to have going on in a box, but not the end of the world really, it's the fact it's neutered the frontpage compatability, and the .htaccess files. In addition to that, I'm getting quite annoyed frankly opening these CPanel bug reports using their new CGI, I've yet to hear a peep back on a single one of them, for all I know (aside from the autoresponder), they're piping them into /dev/null, as this is a pretty big deal (frontpage being half broken, no .htaccess functionality, segfaults, etc. etc. etc.)

I don't know if it helps much, but I couldn't produce seg faults (.htaccess authentication) across 9 redhat machines, they're all configured like below:
