mongrel dev server and custom subdirectories within ./public

Everyone -

I'm trying to add some theme support for my application and started
creating a logical directory structure under public -

/public/themes/custom/my_theme_name/*.css
/public/themes/custom/my_theme_name/images/*

etc etc. Looks good on paper.

But when I run a development mongrel server to test things out, it
tries to run my included css stylesheets through the routing engine.
Is there any way I can set mongrel up in a way where it won't do that?
Has anyone had this happen to them before?

Example:

Guys - I’m a knucklehead. I had the path set completely wrong. Please disregard my question :-/

Let this be a warning - don’t drink (too much caffeine) and code!
