Can not install Magento Patch 6788 due to .htaccess inconsistency

This is well known issue, Magento need to patch .htaccess file as well as its sample file (.htaccess.sample). If you use a modified .htaccess file you have to run something like this:

mv .htaccess .htaccess_original
wget -qO .htaccess http://svn.magentocommerce.com/source/branches/1.7/.htaccess
wget -qO  .htaccess.sample http://svn.magentocommerce.com/source/branches/1.7/.htaccess.sample
sh PATCH_SUPEE-6788_CE_1.9.1.0_v1-2015-10-27-09-06-11.sh
mv .htaccess .htaccess_patched
mv .htaccess_original .htaccess

Do not forget to use the correct patch filename.
