I was able to fix it by downgrading Catalyst::Plugin::Session.  We were
on 0.13 until I upgraded to .19 (latest) along with a bunch of other
Catalyst modules.  Just as a last resort before I downgraded everything
back to the way it was I tried just downgrading
Catalyst::Plugin::Session and it worked!  Woohoo!

Please send the output of a full request cycle using the debug flag.
For example, with the built-in server:

DBIC_TRACE=1 ./script/*server.pl -r -d

I'm not sure that using two Session::State plugins is recommended.  At
the very least, have you set the no_rewrite_if_cookie flag for
