URL Authorization in ASP.NET 2.0 not working for html and image files

Microsoft says that

ASP.NET version 2.0 on Windows Server 2003 protects all files in a
given directory, even those not mapped to ASP.NET, such
as .html, .gif, and .jpg files.

I have a ASP.NET 2.0 webapp on a 2003 server with the following
Web.Config file

<?xml version="1.0"?>
                <compilation debug="true"/>
                <authentication mode="Forms"/>
      <deny users="?"/>

Lets say that the app is on the following URL: www.myapp.com.
When I access www.myapp.com/default.aspx I will correctly be
redirected to the Login.aspx page.
But if I try www.myapp.com/pictures/mypicture.jpg the picture is
loaded without requiring login.
Same happens for html pages.

I have checked that the app is running under NET 2.0 in IIS.
I have tried to install on 3 different 2003 servers but with no

What am I doing wrong?

Hope you can help
