That is fine, but then that makes this a documentation issue and should remain
open, it should at least be documented so people don't waste valuable work days
screwing around.

"This directive controls whether requests that contain trailing pathname
information that follows an actual filename (or non-existent file in an
existing directory) will be accepted or rejected."

Nowhere does it state

"This directive will check if the prefix of the filename before the extension
matches a requested PATH and serve the first file it finds"

I am raising issues of undocumented behavior, at the very least it should
explain how it decides what file to include if I request /foo/

and there are 2 files

Does it go alphabetically?
Does it pick based on some extension priority?

This are basically rhetorical questions a user would ask him / herself after
reading the documentation. I am not asking for support since I already fixed my
issue, I am simply stating the actual behavior and documentation differ. The
fact if it was "intended" or not I am not arguing.
