Try the following:

RewriteRule     (.*)        /servlet/SnoopServlet?target=$1 [L,T=jserv-servlet]

This will force the type of the request to "jserv-servlet", which is
associated with mod_jserv.

In my experience, it does not matter what order the mod_jserv and
mod_rewrite directives are in, the rewritten URL does not pick up the
"jserv-servlet" type unless you explicitly force it.
