I have a WP multisite installation. All the posts for the default blog are in the subdirectory /blog. All those URLs are fine, all the category and archive links work well. However, visiting the "www.domain.com/blog/" URL leads to a 404. Is this expected behaviour?

I thought it might be something to do with my particular install, but I checked another and it seems to be the same.

I'm running version 3.2.1

You have posts on the main multisite blog, correct? – chrisguitarguy Oct 27 '11 at 20:31
Yes and the permalinks to those posts work. It's just the 'root' level of the blog that 404s. – Martin Petts Nov 1 '11 at 16:21

Make a page called "blog" and use a blog page template and it works.
