I really don't see a way that it does either. It does free the rook to move around though, whereas it can't after Rxf3 without abandoning the h pawn. This position needs really concrete analysis, not just practical ideas.
46. ... Re3+ 47. Kb4 Rxf3 48.c5
46. ... Nf4 47.c5 (And Others)
46. ... Nf4 47.c5 Rc6 48.Kb4 Ne6 49.Rxh3+ Kg7 50.Nxa7 Rxc5 MIGHT be a safe draw. I'm too tired to look at it now, but I think a draw is a reasonable result.
Edit: That doesn't look so good now that I've thought about it. I can't really see the h pawn promoting though. 47.c5 47. ... ???
