This is a weird bug with the interaction of page.Page (which I assume
you are using) and --resource-script. If you create your resource and
then set the addSlash attribute to 0 it should help solve it:
resource = page.Page("hello", templateFile="SomeTemplate.html")
resource.addSlash = 0
Basically, Page by default tries to redirect to the same url with a
slash at the end, but when a Page is the root resource the test that
tests to see if there is a slash is never True.
Thomas Raschbacher had this problem before, I should have fixed this
properly earlier. Sorry about it.

The file you specify as the --resource-script should be either a full,
absolute path or a relative path to the file from the directory you run
mktap in (I believe.)
Also, I believe --resource-script and --path are mutually exclusive.
(I'm not totally sure though...) Using --resource-script will put the
resource generated by the .rpy at the root of the Resource tree. Using
--path will put a twisted.web.static.File pointing to the file or
directory specified at the root of the Resource tree.
