In some cases a subrequest is used to change to the new location,
which will retrigger the RewriteRules.  I don't recall all the details
of this, but it is less likely to happen if you omit the PT flag and
also if you provide a full (file-system) path to landingpage.cfm.  But
it shouldn't be a problem in any case.
