If the client doesn't pass any Host: header it gets the wrong index.html -
that's the problem.

(telnet to port 80, GET / HTTP/1.0 Enter twice)

I don't want support for unqualified hostnames; I would like the old
Apache behaviour back where it would look at the interface address, as I
thought it was meant to be.

Again, it may have been a broken setup at my end but I do not believe so..
server-status shows that Apache attaches the real virtual_host to it but
fails to get the real index.html somehow.
