[Twisted-Python] Broken Twisted on Debian/sarge

I'm using Debian sarge for my server, with twisted-web and twisted-python,
and until recently was very happy at never having to touch Apache again.
Now it's all dead.
I did a standard 'apt-get upgrade', which moved me up to twisted-python
version 1.0.5+1.0.6rc2. I am running a server thusly:
mktap web --path ./docroot --allow-ignore-ext --logfile ./web.log
That's all. No more. And when I browse to http://mysite/, instead of
serving up 'index.html' (which exists), it endlessly redirects, with my log
files piling up with requests for http://mysite/////////////////////
Now, if the docroot directory is _empty_, or if it has no index files, it
displays a directory listing normally. So it seems the problem is only when
returning an index file.
Additionally, navigating to http://mysite/index.html works fine. It's only
when you have http://mysite/ that things get weird.
When I signed up for Debian 'unstable', this isn't quite what I expected ;)
