you are totally right and I take everything back.
I used 'exit' in my redirection routine where I actually meant 'return'
and this lead to the described behavior in the forked server when one of
the old cgi-stype URLs was used.
Your hint with the app_test.pl running in the debugger helped me a lot.

I will also look into overriding prepare_path no.
