Yup, I'm noting it down. It's windows webdav redirector that breaks when
top-level URL (/xwiki/) does not respond correctly to OPTIONS webdav request
(i.e webdav redirector recursively checks whether WEBDAV operations are
supported by the given URL, if /xwiki/ says it does not support webdav
functions, webdav redirector fails even though /xwiki/webdav/ is a webdav
Thanks for pointing, it didn't come to my mind because the normal jetty
distribution bundles the root webapp by default.
