Invisible Directory name when Authentication required

           Summary: Invisible Directory name when Authentication required
           Product: Apache httpd-2.0
           Version: 2.0.48
          Platform: Other
        OS/Version: Other
            Status: NEW
          Severity: Normal
          Priority: Other
         Component: mod_dir
        AssignedTo: bugs@httpd.apache.org
        ReportedBy: jmv@versailles.inra.fr


I've configured httpd so that it has just to display  
the content of a Directory that contains downloadable files. 

One of the sub-directories is protected and
I've added Authentication rules in order to allow access to known users
(.htpasswd).

With Apache 1.3.31, the protected Directory was
visible ; a click on it starts the authentication process.

Since I've upgraded to Apache 2.0.48 the subfolder name isn't visible ; 
I've to add it's name in the URL to access it via the authentication stage.

If I comment out all Auth* Directives, the Directory is visible.

Could you tell me if it is a security issue ? Not sure. 


Here is the configuration

<Directory      "/software/">
Options         +Indexes
AllowOverride   None
</Directory>

# Protected Directory
#
<Directory      "/software/PCMI/">
Options         +Indexes
AllowOverride   None
AuthName        "PCMI Directory"
AuthType        Basic
AuthUserFile    /etc/httpd/conf/passwd/pcmi.passwd
Require         valid-user
</Directory>
