1. You are wasting your time because the TRACK method doesn't even
exist in Apache and the TRACE method is not dangerous.

2. If you really want to waste your time, then use a recent version of
apache that has the TraceEnable directive to solve this "problem".

3. If you must use mod_rewrite, then put
RewriteEngine On
RewriteOptions inherit
inside the <VirtualHost> block for your ssl vhost.
