This caught me out too. The "set layout" changes a setting, and it's 

So - once it's set it stays set for any further requests, until you set 
it to something else. Which, if you're trying to use it like you are 
(and I did) is not helpful.

Mathhew's recommendation is right - add an options hashref to the 
template call and you can set it just for that template (which is what I 
usually want).

Why have it the other way? Presumably it's useful if you want to switch 
layouts because e.g. the user is viewing the site from their phone, or 
has chosen an accessible layout etc.
