Thanks for reading! It occurs to me that what And it causes something to break. Hope all the folk who recommend repairing permissions as the first step for debugging any problem take note. I had a bit of a different permissions problem crop up, and on two different machines. I did a clean install on both and then used the Setup Assistant migration tool not Migration Assistant after boot to migrate user data off of a bootable backup.
Avoid file-sharing risks
Many user files, including lots of preferences like for the dock, got migrated as owned by root. Needless to say, some havoc was caused and I ended up having to chown -R my home folders. We missed a build or two late in the process, but that makes it hard for me to support that Leopard did this all on its own, at least in the GM version. All got the new ACL treatment.

Matt — thanks for the feedback — I was worried I might be overstating the case, but I had gotten some corroboration from friends after I first discovered it. All have ACL rules on them, and have done for a few seeds now. This is doing an erase and install, and having a new blank user though. So it might be Apple being a beneficient backstop, rather than trying to futz up your Apache.
