No, not in the error_log. Here is what gets output into the access log
when I try to access something with the authentication enabled:

<snip> - - [06/Dec/2005:14:36:39 -0600]

This virtual host is accepting connections for the correct name (via
name-based virtual hosts). I've got the ServerName attribute specified
in my virtual host correctly. I've also commented out all other virtual
hosts while trying to debug this.

No, In fact I've removed all the Limit tags. and the only Location tag I
have is in my virtual host.

I wish it did. What is extremely odd is that it only gives the issue
when doing an authentication.
