I have tested VM4 on J3 for some month and see that many problems are solved and VM4 now working good. But today I have upgraded to J4 and got some problems.

I have no root VM category menu item, I have categoryes menu items already. Example:, or and by this way I have URL like and etc.

But after update to J4 a have got URL like on frontpage. I tryed many settings and found the only way to make good looking URL is to make root category menu item. But after this I URL become like

Anybody know how to make good routing without making root category item? Because it makes URL longe and bad looking.
