htaccess seems to break in user homes

i am not perfectly sure about this issue, so i will not file an issue on github before making this clear.
so here is the problem: when i run selfoss in my user home on server.org/~user/selfoss/ it is not accessible. the apache2 error log reports: File does not exist: /var/www/home

i tried a htaccess redirect in /var/www like this: RewriteRule ^user\/(.*)$ /~user/$2 [QSA,L]
this works for everything in the user home to be accessible via server.org/user/… except for selfoss. i had to place a symlink: /var/www/user -> /home/user/public_html/selfoss to make selfoss be accessible.

since everything else works fine and the root .htaccess file of selfoss is kind of crowded, it seems to me that this might be the cause. can anyone approve this?
