Figured it out. I believe since 1.30xx onward, we have the following in dispatch.cgi

use Dancer ':syntax';
use FindBin '$RealBin';
use Plack::Runner;

# For some reason Apache SetEnv directives dont propagate
# correctly to the dispatchers, so forcing PSGI and env here 
# is safer.
set apphandler => 'PSGI';
*** set environment => 'production';

The line marked with *** sets the default environment to "production". This is coming from the "dancer -a" bootstrapping program which writes out "dispatch.cgi" around line 596.

This line was forcing my app to always be in production, ignoring any other settings, for example, the settings in my apache conf file.
