But the following request will happily serve the file:

  GET /TeSt/index.html

Though it causes a bit of a performance penalty, a .htaccess file in a
protected directory will resolve that problem.

Make sure that the web server directory in the config file is set to:

AllowOverride Limit AuthConfig


AllowOverride All

Then in the protected directory, /Library/WebServer/Documents/test, add a
.htaccess file containing:

    Order deny,allow
    Deny from all

I too would prefer apple to make it's modules available, but I think this is
a good workaround.
