Could this be a text vs. binary issue?  I'm grasping at straws here...
It's good that you've moved everything to the local disk - it helps to
eliminate as many variables as possible.  Did you get an authenticated
access webpage (.html, as opposed to a CGI script) working?  Can you
initially create the user file in the directory where you're trying to set
up authentication (for testing purposes)?  Can you show the output of "ls
-la" in that directory?
