examples/simple-httpd.c: Fix handling of directories

A bug introduced in commit 53a3dd24 (a
copy/paste mistake has replaced a variable name) causes the example
httpd to not handle directories correctly.

Additionally, we add a comment recommending programmers to provide a
descriptive error message. This could give users and programmers a hint
as to what went wrong.

Fixes #2
