I guess you would have checked this, but ... have you checked the
access.conf file? Could be you've "lost" the necessary "Options Includes"
statement, without which it won't work (even with the srm.conf statements
you mentioned).

Also, since you reconstructed the files, it occurred to me that you might
have been using the XBitHack option for SSI -- which would require the
files to have the user 'x' bit set on file permissions. Since you remade
the files, maybe the permissions changed?

Hope this helps.
