Use the RewriteLog to figure out what is going on.  In my opinion,
both of them should be using the ^/$ syntax.  The URL-path used by
RewriteRule will start with a slash when it is used in a server-wide
of <VirtualHost> context.  It is only when it is used in a <Directory>
or .htaccess file that the / will be missing.
