ArcGIS REST Services Directory using an SOE

I have an SOE which extends the ArcGIS Server map services.  The SOE itself works well, i.e. I can call the various functions with no problem.  The issue I have is using the ArcGIS Services Directory in order to explore my SOE.

In particular, I have Child Resources off my root resource which are not collections but do have child resources.  The resource is sort of like a folder which contains other folders.  Here is an portion of the schema:

    "name": "NE",
    "isCollection": false,
    "resources": [{
        "name": "Inventory",
        "isCollection": false,
        "operations": [{
// Text omitted

When I click on Inventory in the REST Services Directory what the code returns is a response which is application/json where the content is "{}".  What the browser then does is to issue the following prompt "Do you want to open or save Inventory.json (2 bytes) from localhost?".  The browser I am using is IE 10 on Windows 8 x64.

What am I doing wrong?  I believe that this code used to work in version 10 but I am currently running 10.1 SP1.
