fixed in trunk and 2.2.x:

I've moved/enhanced the text that was already there:

When using the rewrite engine in .htaccess files the per-directory prefix
(which always is the same for a specific directory) is automatically removed
for the pattern matching and automatically added after the substitution has
been done. This feature is essential for many sorts of rewriting; without this,
you would always have to match the parent directory, which is not always
possible. There is one exception: If a substitution string starts with http://,
then the directory prefix will not be added, and an external redirect (or proxy
throughput, if using flag P) is forced. See the RewriteBase directive for more

If there's some specific concern unadressed, reproduce the section of the
updated doc in a new bugzilla report and provide your specific recommendation.
