[Catalyst] Issue with Catalyst::Plugin::Authentication and updating user information (jayk, looking at you!)

In my current application we require the feature of allowing users to
change their login information.  My initial attempts work, but on the
next page request (which is the redirect after the POST) I get:

Caught exception in EMS::Controller::Profile->setup "Can't call method
"auth_realm" on an undefined value at
/home/jshirley/perl5/lib/perl5/Catalyst/Authentication/Realm.pm line

First step was to check out C::P::A and C::A::Store::DBIx::Class out
from svn, install from there and try again.  Same thing.

So, I build up some tests on C::A::Store::DBIx::Class that does
(functionally) the same thing (http://scsys.co.uk:8001/17020), but
they all pass and the user name is being updated.

I've tried adding in update_user_in_session, which doesn't seem to do anything.

Before I dive too far into the guts, hoping someone has an idea or
two, or perhaps point out the failing of my tests.
