Startpage template problem

I have created my own content templates and setup a new N2 installation without any problems.
But I noticed a problem with my custom startpage.
When the startpage is registered in web.config (startPageID), I cannot get the page to render fields e.g. Title.
If I create a new startpage and set <startPageID> in web.config to the new item, the first created page renders perfectly.

Has anyone had the same problem?

Here are some code snippets.

    <component id="n2.defaultSite">

[N2.Definition("FrontPage", "FrontPage", Installer = N2.Installation.InstallerHint.PreferredStartPage)]
[N2.Web.UI.TabPanel("Content", "Content", 0)]
[N2.Details.WithEditableTitle("Title", 10, Focus = true, ContainerName = "Content")]
public class Frontpage : N2.ContentItem
    public override string TemplateUrl
            return string.Concat("~/Web/Templates/", this.GetType().Name, "/Default.aspx");

<asp:Content ID="Content" ContentPlaceHolderID="ContentPlaceHolder" runat="server">

    <n2:Display ID="TitleDisplay" PropertyName="Title" runat="server" />


public partial class Default : N2.Web.UI.Page<Hojgaard.Templates.Items.Frontpage>
    protected void Page_Load(object sender, System.EventArgs e)

Is it possible that /default.aspx handles the request instaed of  /web/templates/frontpage/default.aspx? N2 doesn't rewrite when a file exists at the requested url.
