OK. That makes sense. I am not using request->uri_* at all. I actually have fully qualified links always, and I set them up in my config files like so

appuri: "...."
liburi: "...."

and then, in my templates, [% appuri %]/foo etc.

No wonder I never experienced this as an issue. On the other hand, I've had countless other issues with deployment, and the only one that has worked for me is Starman behind Apache proxy. As a result, I now I have 12 Dancer apps on my iMac with 10 Starman workers on each, so my process list is polluted with 120 of Perl processes.

At some point I have to revisit running all this via mod_perl or mod_psgi or whatever. I never could get fast_cgi to work with Apache.
