This is a common problem.  Perhaps we should make an FAQ.  You can specify
up to three urls in the skinconf.xml.  These are used as the first items
in the breadcrumb trail.  After that, javascript is used to make links for
each directory, beginning at the domain.  So in your case, javascript
creates a 'gump' link for the 'gump' directory.  So you should not specify
a breadcrumb for in your skinconf.xml

Looking at site.xml, I don't see an entry for nagged, so it doesn't know
which tab to put it under.  If you don't want a link to it in the menu,
but still want it to appear as part of one tab, you can use a site.xml
entry without specifying a label.

The new forrestbot in latest CVS works, but the webapp to trigger it is
not working yet.  These are both in the 'sandbox' directory and will
replace the old forrestbot once they are ready.  After this, I will see
what has to be done to get it up at
