I will renew my proposal for a GET variable to be set. If that is  
set, then WP falls back on "non fancy permalink" handling and looks  
at the GET variables directly. This allows custom rewrite rules to  
work as the person intended without having to figure out all of the  
places in the Query object that need to be set/overridden/etc.

Tip for Eric, change the permissions of your .htaccess file so that  
WP can't write to it.
