Then we still have a problem, because I'm not seeing your issue here 8-)

This is what I have done:

I have SVN forrest at

   C:\Documents and Settings\barozzink\My Documents\My Workspace\forrest

gotten from

I have set FORREST_HOME to that exact dir (yes, we have changed it) and
added %FORREST_HOME%\bin to the PATH.

I've downloaded

and expanded it in

   C:\Documents and Settings\barozzink\Desktop\tapsnap\**

I've added

   C:\Documents and Settings\barozzink\Desktop\tapsnap\

with the exact contents you have indicated in your mail:

I have also added a vanilla status.xml file in

   C:\Documents and Settings\barozzink\Desktop\tapsnap\status.xml

After deleting

   C:\Documents and Settings\barozzink\Desktop\tapsnap\target\docs
   C:\Documents and Settings\barozzink\Desktop\tapsnap\target\forrest

I do

  cd C:\Documents and Settings\barozzink\Desktop\tapsnap\
  forrest run

I launch Firefox and point it to


I can see the whole site, and the middle tab is working.

I hit ctrl-c and terminate the webserver.

Then I do

   forrest site

and the site is generated.

Then I load this into FireFox:


and I still see everything ok.

Maybe you can try doing the above steps and also trying them with
forrest-0.6. I will eventually try it tomorrow with 0.6, where I have a
better connection to download the beast ;-)
