Ackk.  This was caused by the OPTIONS and PROPFIND handlers redirecting for
directories not terminated with "/" (which was an "enhancement" in 0.9.8).
Works under XP, but not 2000.  Turns out it shouldn't work on any platform;
only for GET and HEAD.  Which is okay, because it turns out the lack of a "/"
wasn't really causing the issues I was seeing anyways.

I'll be rolling 0.9.8 out tonight, hopefully.  And, hopefully, not breaking
anything else ;)
