I think that something else is producing this. I messed up a website 
some time ago trying to do the same thing.
I often work with .htaccess files on several websites using WSftp, no 
problem. But one time - on a site running on Apache/1.3.12·(Unix) - I 
got exactly Bob's result: file disappears, website stuck with an 
internal server error. I had to wait for support to get in there and 
kill the *invisible* file. But they couldn't explain the problem, 
they just said that the file was visible on their side.....

Ideas anyone? Could it be a configuration issue?
