When change settings in my new installation of 2011 (3.3.1), my htaccess file is overwritten and the blog falls into a redirect loop. I had help getting my blog fixed, then downloaded the htaccess file (inside the WP folder) for safe keeping. Made another change in "Settings" and the issue happened again. Blog broken. Reuploaded htaccess and blog is fixed.

Which settings page were you changing? Permalinks?

Can you post a before/after of your .htaccess?

.htaccess does get modified when permalinks are changed, but only specific pieces in between markers: #BEGIN WordPress and #END WordPress. If you're losing modifications to that file, then you're including them inside those markers. Could you share with us the before/after of your file?
