That looks exactly the same to me.
Here's more detail: The 400 error doesn't happen always.
This (from the old CleanUrls recipe) seems to work correctly... on my
RewriteRule ^([^/a-z].*) ... [QSA,L]
(with a / in front of a-z)
Would that be likely to work in virtually any .htaccess file? Might
this be sensitive to some server configuration setting?
