Ah, OK, you are not calling it directly. Yes, that may be one of the
security holes that was patched up in 2.7.4 I think. The solution is
easy: Give index_html a proxy role. In this case "Authenticated" is
enough. f1_index itself if you call it directly will not be
accessible, and that's how it has to be.

[cb] And what are my options if I want to call f1_index directly from f11?
