There was a problem in Jigsaw 2.0.2 and earlier with modified root
resource. However, a virtual host should not disappear. However, if the
PassDirectory target is no longer available (or you don't have the right
to access it), then it will be deleted. If your directory was a connected
drive, unavailable at the time you tried to access the URI, it may be the
answer.
