app_offline.htm and asp.net 2.0

I’ve discovered it today:
 
if you add an app_offline.htm file to an asp.net 2.0 web site, you web site appdomain will shutdown and any request to you web site will get the app_offline.htm file content until you remove it.
This is a great way to put your web site in maintenance mode.
