This appears to be a bug (I've verified it exists in 0.8-dev). Please 
submit a bug report [1] so that we don't lose it (also owrht adding mny 
comments below).

If you fancy tackling the problem the issue is that the breadcrumbs code 
is no longer appending index.html to the link. I recall a discussion on 
dev about this and how it relates to i18n sites, but I can't recall what 
the conclusion was.

Anyway, a solution is to either add "index.html" to every breadcrumb 
link in the code that generates the breadcrumb trail (in something like 
breadcrumbs.js in the common skin), or to add a redirect to the 
sitemap.xmap that will always redirect an URL ending in a '/' to the 
same url with "index.html" appended. See the core sitemap.xmap for an 
example of how to do this ('/' is redirectoed to '/index.html')

If you solve the problem please attach a patch to the issue you create.
