Hmmm, maybe therein lies my problem.  I thought, for some reason, 
that I needed to provide AuthLDAPURL with a URL which referenced the 
top of a branch.  I have 2 main branches, People (which contains 
everyone's records) and Admins, which is a groupOfUniqueNames, 
containing uniqueMember entries, which are the dn's of those members.

Are you saying that the <Directory /admin/> section should have the 
same AuthLDAPURL entry as the <Directory /> section?

	It may look like I'm just sitting here doing nothing,
   but I'm really actively waiting for all my problems to go away.
