I didn't take the time to study your message in detail (it is quite
complicated) but I think the problem will be clearer (and may even go
away!) if you use a trailing slash at the end of your re-directs, i.e. ->  ->

At the moment, you are forcing a re-direct to a location without a
trailing slash. This causes apache to issue another redirect (with the
trailing slash) using the ServerName argument - which may not be what
you want. This could be why you're getting into a loop. 

The trailing slash is quite important and is not just an optional
nicety. The fact that apache works at all without it should be a cause
of wonderment rather than taken for granted :-)
