[Zope] Some VHM questions

I have a zope site running behind apache 2.0. The zope istnace has a VHM 
in there that maps to a domain. I had a few questions about the VHM 

In my site the primary structure is as such:

    /nbs_online/               ( maps to nbs.neuro-bs.com )
    /nbs_online/secure    ( maps to secure.neuro-bs.com )
/test                               (doesnt map to anything )

The required rewrite rules are in the httpd.conf and ssl.conf

The problem is I can access /test or for that matter any other URL 
outside nbs_online via the url nbs.neuro-bs.com/test or whatever the 
folder name is. The rewrite rules are given below.
My question is why??

the rewrite rules in my virtualhost nbs.neuro-bs.com (httpd.conf)

RewriteRule ^/secure/(.*) https://secure.neuro-bs.com/$1 [R]
RewriteRule ^/(.*)$1 

and the rewrite rules in my ssl.conf for virtualhost (secure.neuro-bs.com)

RewriteRule ^/(.*)$1 

However is you look at the folder structure above, can anybody explain 
why I can access the folder information via:


which should be mapping to https://nbs.neuro-bs.com/secure/information 
and thus raising a 404??
