[Catalyst] PathPart help

I am using

__PACKAGE__->config->{ namespace } = 'foo';

sub obj_setup :  PathPart('') CaptureArgs(1) {}
sub create_setup : PathPart('') CaptureArgs(0) {}

sub view : PathPart('') Chained('obj_setup') Args(0) {}
sub edit : PathPart('') Chained('obj_setup') Args(0) {}
sub create : PathPart('create') Chained('create_setup') Args(0) { }

The thing I don't understand is that when the Chained actions are 
printed out, it gives me the correct actions as I would expect them.  
The create one just doesn't get matched.
