Yes, this is the default behaviour of page templates. It is the same
as for Scripts (Python): if the Publisher finds a page template in the
path, it immediately stops processing, publishes the page template and
leaves the rest of the path in the variable "traverse_subpath" of the
You could try to add something like
define="object python:here.restrictedTraverse(request['traverse_subpath')" />
to get at least some error message, if the rest of the path is not
empty, and points to a non existing object. (If any acquisition gurus
are reading this thread, they maybe could advice, if
"template.restrictedTraverse" is better suited or not.)
I feel the "request_path" feature is not really overdocumented yet,
to say so ;). Actually I figured it out from the analogous
"traverse_subpath" variable implicitely defined in python scripts + guessing.
hope this helps,
