I have the same problem in my mirror.

The is due that many servers (hosting servers primarly) have desactivated 
Indexes by default, and the mirror admin can't (or don't want, like I) 
activate if globally for the full site (due that may contain others webs 
appart the LFS mirror).

But we (the mirrors admins) can't add an .htaccess file to the required 
mirrored directories due that it is deleteted each tiime the mirror is 

Then, IMHO, the better solution is to add an .htaccess file in the master web 
root directory (or into the required subdirectories) containig:

Options All Indexes
IndexOptions FancyIndexing
