Cassini as a service

The download stats on my web server for my "Cassini as a service" sample are hitting the big numbers currently (over 1000 already). If you're interested, you can find more info on http://www.asp.net/Forums/ShowPost.aspx?tabindex=1&PostID=594985. Cassini is a lightweight webserver for ASP.NET that is used by the ASP.NET Web Matrix and now lives further in Visual Studio 2005 (aka Whidbey). By running it as a service you can contact the server even when the user is not logged on (just as this is the case with IIS). Beside of that, the sample has a Windows Forms client (systemtray client) and an installer in it.Del.icio.us | Digg It | Technorati | Blinklist | Furl | reddit | DotNetKicks

I'm trying to set the virtual directory. I assume the Virtual directory actually creates the Application name.
So if I have my home directory set to the actual path say: C:\WebProjects\Rod which works and runs great.
But when I put /Rod in the virtual directory is fails w/ a 404 error saying /Rod not found?
The problem is I have a dll that autogenerates a path to a folder holding a behavior file, but this dll generates its path from the namespace so it looks bases it on the application path as such /Rod/Behaviors/treeview.htc but when using Cassini it has no idea what /Rod is because the application path is set to just /
