[Catalyst] Action for index not 'index'?

Hello All,

I'm working on adding breadcrumbs to my catalyst app and I've run into
something unexpected.

I'm using Catalyst::Plugin::Breadcrumbs. Let's assume I have a
controller Foo. If I just go to /foo ( the index ), the plugin assumes
that the action will be 'index', but the action is actually just

Because of this, my breadcrumbs show as Foo/Foo instead of Foo/Index (
or just Foo if hide_index is true ).

Is this expected behaviour? Has the behaviour changed since
Plugin::Breadcrumbs was written? I've been able to modify the code for
the plugin to compensate, but was hoping someone could shed some light
on this subject.
