Please checkout the reference implementation for the tutorial from:

svn checkout http://dev.catalyst.perl.org/repos/Catalyst/tags/ 

If the problem still exists  then there's a problem with the code, or  
your catalyst install.  Please let us know if the reference  
implementation is also doing the wrong thing.
