I believe your problem with the '1' and the '/' has been fixed in the latest bzr commit, but I'll experiment more. Further, the reason you can't load the article without the .htaccess file, is that it is needed for search engine friendly urls. The "mod_rewrite" module is loaded with that file.
The fix will be available in 2.2.2, but if you need it immediately, you can clone the latest bzr branch and replace your 'shownews.php' with the current revision. If you don't know how to do this, I'll be happy to help.
