Actually I believe this has something to do with the AllowOverride
directive in the main apache configuration. You get the internal server
error because you are not allowed to ovverride the FollowSymLinks
directive in local .htaccess files.

Under this perspective phpMyAdmin was opening a security hole but it
hasn't been allowed by a sane global apache configuration ;)
