Sorry for taking so long to get back to you on this problem.   
Unfortunately, using your exact config, I was not able to reproduce  
the issue.  Here are the versions of things I have:

Apache/2.2.4 with mod_fastcgi/2.4.2
Perl 5.8.6
Catalyst 5.7008
FCGI.pm 0.67
FCGI::ProcManager 0.17

To debug the problem further, the next thing to check is the contents  
of the environment that is passed to the FastCGI handler.  Add the  
following line to Catalyst::Engine::FastCGI before line 145  

warn Data::Dump::dump( \%env );

On your problem request /login, check the values of the following 2  
keys.  I've pasted mine here so you can compare.

PATH_INFO            => "/login",
SCRIPT_NAME          => "",
