It is a problem only if you are using port forwarding which is a
configuration we do not support.
Proxy servers are completely transparent wrt that, proxies do not
rewrite URLs.

You should use the SOCKS option of SSH if you need to port forward and
configure your browser to use the port you set up as a SOCKS proxy.

This should make your situation work w/o changes to the apache

Note that if you disable that, Kerberos auth will fail and you'll
probably end up enabling basic auth which is bad, (heavy weight on the
KDC and also stores your kerberos password in the browser).
