I should have emphasized again that if I run
Plack::Runner->run('path/to/app.psgi') from the command line, I can go
to http://localhost:5000/ and my application works fine. I don't even
have to add the "use lib '/path/to/app/lib'" to app.psgi. It works
well even without that use lib line.

It is via dispatch.cgi that it just does not work.
