The mod_rewrite configuation can differ sometimes.

Is the error you're getting an Apache error or any other?

I've encountered a few times, that the last rule had to be changed from 
RewriteRule .* index.php [L] to

RewriteRule .* /index.php [L]

or once even

RewriteRule .* somedir/index.php [L]

Just try to disable CoolUri/RealUrl and go to www.example.com/foo and it 
should redirect you to index.php. If not, there's no problem with 
CoolUri/RealUrl, but with your redirect rules.
