I have run into this same issue... on our development lighttpd server 
the Catalyst application is accessible through URLs like:


If you didn't include the trailing slash, Catalyst would set 
$c->request->base incorrectly.

Our solution was simply to force trailing slashes (although I am having 
trouble finding this configuration option), which really just works 
around the core Catalyst issue.  I'll see if I can dig up more on this.
