Frustration browsing the root directory.

I have the Root (docs_space) resource defined as a DirectoryResource with an
HTTPFrame.  The Index attribute of the frame is set to null, so that I may view the
contents of the root directory.  The Identifier of the docs_space is root.

Now, when browsing the root directory (using Explorer), I see the root directory.  If
I click on the root directory, my URL now becomes http://localhost:8001/root, and the
directory contents are re-displayed.  This continues in a cyclical fashion
.../root/root/root ....

Is there any way to hide the root directory definition itself or change its behavior?
(I tried deleting the root resource in JigAdmin, renaming the identifier, changing the
Root Name property, etc. etc., to no avail.  The only thing that works is to display an
html page instead of allowing the root directory to be browsed.)

I would appreciate any comments you may have on this subject, or a pointer to
documentation that I may have missed.

Thanks in advance -
