Possibly, although I also tried without the catch-all (^).

Turns out that this site is managed using multiple configuration files
in multiple directories, and I was editing a file that would get
overridden by another "master" config file.  So, my stuff may have
worked, but it wasn't being read as I expected.

Thanks for your help! I will keep that catch-all in mind next time.
