Thanks Dieter for confirmation, it was a surprise.

Found this way, by remembering old DTML-tricks.

        obj = getattr(view.aq_parent, obj.getId())
        view = getattr(obj, view.getId())
        result = view(view=pagecontext)

just for illustration, as I must now differentiate in the parent
lookup between DirectoryViews and normal objects. This won't be
needed, if the controller is given an explizit path.

Thanks again,
