But, I’m not sure if there’s some undiscovered side-effect.  Can anyone shed any light
on this problem?

I don't think this is a bug. There are other links to index.html in the 
fresh-site and so Forrest is trying to render it (see 
samples/usemap.xml). I have not tested it, perhaps you could do that for 
me, but if you change *all* references to index.* in fresh-site then 
this should go away.

To see what pages are linking to the missing file look at
