Here are my routes:

   get  '/redirect' => sub { redirect '/welcome'         };

   get  '/login'    => sub { render_as_markdown('login') };
And here are the results I get:

   http://host/redirect -> welcome page
   http://host/login    -> login page with CGI form

route and redirect to 'welcome'. Can anyone suggest how I
might get that behavior? Or what I may be misunderstanding.

More details....

   Username: <input type="text" name="user" /><br />
   Password: <input type="password" name="pass" /><br />
   <input type="submit" value="Submit" />
The full HTML source to the login page is here:
