Sorry to return to this after such a long time, but i dont really know how to write tests for my apps, so i didnt realize there was a problem until just now.

The problem is that there *always* seems to be a body, so fillform doesnt work if im trying to do an edit. Specifically, in my Root.pm:

sub render : ActionClass('RenderView') { }

sub end : Private { 
  my ( $self, $c ) = @_;
  if ($c->res->body) { $c->log->info("There is a body; returning"); return; }
  if (defined $c->stash->{edit_data} ) {
    $c->fillform( $c->stash->{edit_data} );
  } else {

When i try to edit a page, which just goes through the usual Catalyst stuff, i find thta i still get a "There is a body; returning" message in my debug log. That is i get a body no matter what (here i am not generating a PDF page, just a regular page through TT), and fillform never runs. So i cant edit anything, it doesnt fill the form back in from my database.

Is something in the wrong place? Why do i have a body here?
