1. Make sure apache is actually stopping before starting it - I've seen instances where it keeps running.
2. Make sure the running Apache is actually the one for which the config belongs - some devs do weird installs with /usr/local/apache (often plesk) and the system/proper Apache. netstat --tcp -lpn should give you an idea as to which Apache is running/talking to you.
3. I guess .htaccess files may be able to turn +Indexes on (I'm not sure off the top of my head).
