In 2.0 it's ambiguous between proxy and rewrite in the translate_name
hook.  It can likely be affected by swapping the LoadModule directives
(or running on a different system, or applying OS maintenance, ...)

In 2.2 and later, proxy registers its translate_name routine to
explicitly to run before mod_rewrite.

(i believe the translate_name hook is the one that's effective in this case)

Still, probably unwise to have an overlap between ProxyPass and
RewriteRule ... [P]
