[development] mod rewrite rules question

That's exactly what's happening. You are sending an internal request to 
another page, so .htaccess is parsed again and tries to rewrite again 
(and again and again).

Here's a simple solution that I think will achieve what you want:

RewriteEngine On
RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} !^apps\. [NC]
RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} ^([^.]+).example.com$
#Below stops the looping by making sure the request isn't for what you 
rewrote the request too.
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !^members/index.php
RewriteRule (.*) members/index.php?sd=%1&q=$1 [L,QSA]

Now in your application you'll have 2 $_GET variables. One will be 'sd' 
containing the subdomain and then 'q' (to use some Drupal goodness) that 
contains the request path.
