Something is definetly wrong here, since all your debug output is
prefixed with [error].

What does your DieselCatalyst::M::CDBI.pm look like? It should be
something like:

package MyApp::M::CDBI;

use strict;
use base 'Catalyst::Model::CDBI';



All modules in lib/DieselCatalyst/M/CDBI/ should inherit automagically
from that class, but just to make sure you can do:

use base 'DieselCatalyst::M::CDBI'; in the classes and see what happens
