It isn't? 

Here's a mod_rewrite of mine:

RewriteEngine On
RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} !^locusmeus\.com$
RewriteRule (.*) http://locusmeus.com/$1 [R=301,L]

AFAICS it's a mod_rewrite, /and/ it redirects every single page with a
301. Meaning permanent redirect.

I'm missing something. I /have/ doen a 301 for every page on
subdomains I don't use, and it /does/ end up on the main domain with
the correct 301 status and showing the same page on the main domain.
