In contrast to trunk (becoming 2.3/2.4) DirectoryIndex won't work if
you force a handler (for everything) via SetHandler. You can
work-around this issue by placing the Sethandler directive into a
<Files *> container (i.e. restrict it to files). But anyway; since
you're using AddHanler, too, I'm wondering if you really need
SetHandler here.
