Hmmm... I haven't tried it, but I have a suspicion that you could fix
this problem by putting your RewriteRules inside a <Directory
/home/web> instead of in the main server context.  This will  require
some changes to pathnames in your RewriteRules and perhaps the
addition of a RewriteBase directive.

The question is when mod_rewrite works relative to other modules, and
by placing stuff in <Directory>, you should force mod_rewrite to act
in a later phase of processing.
