You have posted your question to the Apache HTTP Server Users' mailing 
list.  Unfortunately, your question has nothing to do with Apache HTTP 
Server as far as I can see, and so this is the wrong place for it.  
Please ask your question on a WordPress mailing list or support forum

You might want to change the URL for the posts page to something that is 
not a prefix of the URLs for your permalinks and see if that affects 
anything, or not.

I have no idea, you did not send it to us.  And please don't send it to 
us -- the directives you put in your .htaccess file will need to be 
specific to both WordPress' requirements and to what you are trying to 
do.  You should ask on a WordPress mailing list or support forum whether 
what you have in your .htaccess file is what WordPress needs.

Ask on a WordPress mailing list or support forum.  Be sure to provide 
them all the information you provided us, and also provide them with the 
specific revision of WordPress you are running, including a list of any 
WordPress plugins and their versions, what version of Apache HTTP Server 
you are running, what version of PHP you are running and how you are 
running it (mod_php, CGI, FastCGI, etc.), any errors that appear in your 
Apache HTTP Server error log file when the error occurs, and the 
contents of your .htaccess file.
