You nailed it. All those Rewrite* options need to be in the virtual
host. Then it works.

This is surprising. I had assumed that anything outside of a virtual
host was a global setting and the virtual host settings overrode those
global settings where appropriate.

Can you recommend anything to read that handles such basic concepts?
The Apache docs are extensive but clearly you need to have a certain
foundation of basic Apache knowledge.
