I was working remotely via SSH earlier.  I'm home now and have tried the
code under Windows, non-Mono.  The code does work as written in the book
under Windows.  I think the code that's misbehaving is this route:

    null, // Don't bother giving this route entry a name
    "", // Matches the root URL, i.e. ~/
    new { controller = "Products", action = "List", page = 1 } // Defaults

Another example later in the book has a similar route:

    "", // Only matches the empty URL (i.e. ~/)
    new { controller = "Products", action = "List",
    category = (string)null, page = 1 }

>From the comments above it looks like the above routes are intented to match
only an empty URL, aka the root URL.  If I put such a route first in my
routing configuration under Mono it matches non-empty URLs.  Is this a bug
in Mono's routes implementation?  If not, what should one use to match an
empty, aka root, URL?
