ls, and rlog both don't work with virtual modules created via the modules2
file, I just tested it using version:

Client/Server: Concurrent Versions System (CVSNT) 2.5.02 (Servalan) Build
2048 (Release Candidate 2) (client/server)

Also the do not recurse operator (!) does not work. Further more if you put
in a line to place the contents of a real directory into the root of of a
virtual directory all other lines for that virtual directory are ignored.

Try creating the structure that he origonally posted, it can't be done, yet
all the documentation says that it can.
