Yes, typos indeed. The problem is that I host this same site from both 
IIS and Linux (dual-boot machine), so I was hoping for a solution that 
would work in both places. I know that this is a terribly fringe case, 
so no worries if there is no good solution. If it starts to bug me 
enough I'll come up with a patch somehow.

No, it doesn't work.

I don't have a permanent IIS host, but I could put my laptop online for 
an evening if that would help. Hard part will be finding a time to do 
it, but let me know. Otherwise I would be happy to run some tests for 
you, if that is feasible.

IMHO, $EnablePathInfo is a perfectly reasonable solution. I suppose I 
could always disable pathinfo on Linux, then both environment would be 
equivalent, at least. I will do that.
