Sorry for the lag in answering. I reviewed a bit the code and found out
that this is a pretty common use case (looking for AP_USERDIR_SUFFIX and
suexec in Google revealed a ton of material). suexec is compiled separately
from httpd, since as you can see from the source it gets a main() by
itself. This means that whatever you set in the httpd's config will not
affect AP_USERDIR_SUFFIX, that is a parameter compiled with suexec (you can
tune it using httpd's configure though at build time, but once you create
the suexec binary it is done). As far as I can see there are suexec
variant's shipped with some distributions that allow a suexec config file,
but I don't have a lot of experience with systems like these.

In this list there should be people running into the same issue that you
encountered, let's see if another ping triggers some answers :)

Hope that helps!
