Thanks.  I worked up a test that duplicates the issue which I just 
committed.  Unfortunately, it appears to be an issue with NEXT.  When 
subrequest calls $c->dispatch, NEXT has already seen the dispatch method 
and therefore refuses to call it a second time.

Tried this in sub_request():

     local $NEXT::SEEN = {};

but with no luck.  There is probably a solution here with localizing the 
proper NEXT data structure.

I also changed my calls to NEXT::ACTUAL so it will die if it can't call 
the dispatch method, rather than appearing to work and just returning
