This isn't (directly) a VHM issue. What you're seeing is Zope
acquisition, a powerful feature that can have surprising effects.
Fundamentally, acquisition means that when you ask the object at
'/nbs_online' for the name 'test', Zope searches for 'test' in
'/nbs_online' and then in '/', where it finds it. In general, if 'a'
contains 'b' contains 'c', and you ask for '/a/b/c/d', Zope will search
for 'd' in 'c', then 'b', then 'a', then the root.
I advise reading about acquisition in the Zope Book at www.zope.org.
