Date Tue, 18 Sep 2007 14:48:07 GMT
Somewhat surprising side effect of passing around backreferences
starting with ~foo

+<note><title>Home directory expansion</title>
+<p> When the substitution string begins with a string
+resembling "/~user" (via explicit text or backreferences), mod_rewrite performs
+home directory expansion independent of any
<module>mod_userdir</module> configuration.</p>
+<p> This expansion does not occur when the <em>PT</em>
+flag is used on the <directive module="mod_rewrite">RewriteRule</directive>

Any suggestion for better wording/formatting/placement appreciated
