Well, what does the error log say?

What does "echo ~user" from a shell say?  ie. are you sure
it is actually /home being used, and not just something that
is a symlink to /home or /home is a symlink to.  You have
to modify your settings for the directory listed in the passwd

All that "deny from none" does is deny accesses from a host
called "none".

This is almost certainly a configuration error and is very
unlikely to be anything resembling a bug in Apache.
