Not sure, but perhaps "authz-db=authz" is the default, so removing
that line may be insufficient. Try setting "authz-db=" or something
like that (making it an empty string). Or alternatively, try setting
it to a filename that doesn't exist (not saying that this is good
practice ... just as a test).
