Admin error.

The solution was pretty simple. The unix root directory (/) had a
.htaccess file accidentally placed there which overrode the conf file
DirectoryIndex directive. I wasn't aware that a .htaccess file outside of
document root or server root would be read for any reason.

The file was removed and normal operation resumed.

Interesting feature...
