What happens specifically when you use it? Does it get ignored entirely?

Do you need to use .htaccess? Things are much less complicated if you
put your directives in httpd.conf (with the appropriate path
modifications in the RewriteRule).

Also, remove the <IfModule> and </IfModule> lines which only serve to
hide useful error messages.

And use the RewriteLog.
