301 Redirects are not working properly because the ruleset in the mod rewrite is somehow getting added to the end of the 301 Redirect. For example, if my 301 Redirect looks like this:

the redirect will go to:
Here is the mod rewrite in htaccess:
RewriteRule ^directory/(.*).html$ /directory/controller.php?section=directory&page=$1 [L]
page and section variables are defined through the included page’s file name.
