Using TreeView with a Site Map

I have a simple Web.sitemap file that Im trying to build a TreeView site map around:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8" ?>
<siteMap xmlns="http://schemas.microsoft.com/AspNet/SiteMap-File-1.0" >
    <siteMapNode url="~/Default.aspx" title="Home">
         <siteMapNode url="~/CreateLogin.aspx"  title="Create an Account" />
         <siteMapNode url="~/Login.aspx"  title="Login" />
    </siteMapNode>
</siteMap>

Ive dragged a SiteMapDataSource control to the page and then a TreeVeiw control.   But as soon as I link the TreeView control to the SiteMapDataSource the TreeView control shows:

"Error parsing control: A relative URI cannot be created because the uriString parameter represents an absolute URI."

I dont see any absolute URIs in what Ive written so this doesnt make sense to me. Does anyone know what might be going on?

Thanks

Do you have a full web URL somewhere in your site map?

I'm not surewhat you mean.  Isn't the "site map" just web.sitemap?  As the Web.sitemap file above shows,  the three nodes there are all releative.  In any case, I checked all the pages in the project and none contain a "www" or an "http:" anywhere in the code, except for things like "siteMap xmlns="http..."  or

 !DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-transitional.dtd">.

So I think the answer is no, I don't have a full web URL anywhere in my site map.

Ok, now it's working!  Not sure what happened.  I deleted all the site map controls and the web.sitemap file  and re-entered everything.  Maybe Visual Web Developer had gotten into some state that confused it.
