I think once the dups are in the index, they'd tend to stay there.
You'd need to rebuild your database from scratch, after defining
remove_default_doc as you want it, in order to have an index that's free
of the superfluous documents. This attribute can be a list as well.
For instance, if your server will recognize any of index.html, index.htm
or default.htm as a directory index file, you can define:

remove_default_doc: index.html index.htm default.htm

Don't add names to the list that aren't treated as directory index files
by your server(s), or you may remove documents that you don't really
want removed from the index.
