You will have to add the RewriteLogLevel and RewriteLog directives (they 
do not appear in a default apache config). They can be set within the 
global apache config or the VirtualHost directive. The purpose of the 
logs is not to eliminate the error, but to try to see how the URLs are 
being rewritten. Add the directives, try to access the page, then look 
at the log file (specified by RewriteLog) to see exactly how apache is 
trying to rewrite it.
