The problem only appears to manifest itself if you use the 'Select' box to
choose the drive and then directory.  Typing the path-target in manually
works just fine...indexing and everything.

I hope that helps someone else who might be experiencing this.

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
