Subject RE: Repeated "load-on-startup" niggle
Date Fri, 23 Jan 2004 15:22:38 GMT
I guess I'm imagining this situation...

www.foo.com/

and 

www.foo.com/hal/

Someone types in the first one, because they're lazy.  Immediately
they're redirected to /hal, and from then on, they stay there.

ie: There's nothing at all at / other than the redirect. (he'd modify
the root context to be NOT the same docbase as /hal)
