[Mono-list] Mapping across application not allowed?

Hi Joe,

I get the same error with "~/Controls/UserControl.ascx" as I get with
"/Controls/UserControl.ascx".  The site footer works just fine, but I'm
assuming it's because it's included in pages in the root directory, whereas
the user control is only used on a page in a different subdirectory.  In
other words, it only works when the user control is within or down the
directory structure or the control has already been included in a file in
the root directory.  I have no idea what the behavior of the user control
should be, but I'm starting to see a pattern.


Root -
Controls -
Modules -
    Legislators -

SiteFooter.ascx is included in Index.aspx and Test.aspx and works with
"~/Controls/SiteFooter.ascx" or "/Controls/SiteFooter.ascx".

UserControl.ascx is included on in Test.aspx and does not work with
"~/Controls/UserControl.ascx" or "/Controls/UserControl.ascx".

It's consistent.  If I move UserControl.ascx to "/Modules/Legislators/" it
works just fine in Text.aspx.

I don't have any problems with this behavior, since I can easily work around
it.  I'm just curious as to why it the behavior is different on Windows and
