The problem seems to be that indeed something somewhere is turning
sec->authoritative off. It's Apache as Adrian detected. The problem
is that ap_set_flag_slot() expects to write to a 4-byte int, wherever
the config rec only has a 1-byte int alias unsigned char, thus overwriting
Hence, both solutions work: (a) convert the boolean fields into 4-byte int
or (b) define config functions that manage 1-byte unsigned chars properly.
