"Once you go virtual, there's no turning back"

The answer is you have to set up the first virtual server to point to
your default server.  It's annoying, and I bitched about it when I found
out about it too, but it's easy to fix.  Just make a vhost file with all
the stuff from your default DocumentRoot in it, and it will work.
