#11843: htaccess pointing to wordpress makes CPU overload

     Type:  defect (bug)     |      Status:  new                
 Priority:  normal           |   Milestone:  Unassigned         
Component:  General          |     Version:  2.9.1              
 Severity:  normal           |    Keywords:  htaccess, premalink
 On a fresh install of wordpress (with or without the default theme, with
 or without a fresh database) the load of my VPS is about 0.10/0.50 (it's a
 quite big website: 6000 unique visitors per day).
 When creating the wordpress lines on my .htaccess the load goes up to more
 than 40/50 and the the VPS crashes.
 This happens also if in Wordpress is not selected to use permalink (so if
 I past by myself the code in htaccess).
 The code I'm talking about is:

 <IfModule mod_rewrite.c>
 RewriteEngine On
 RewriteBase /
 RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f
 RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d
 RewriteRule . /index.php [L]

 Also my hosting is investigatin without results.
 Other people seems to have this problem in past:
