You're either passing in the full class name (i.e. 
WsdSis::Controller::Section is wrong, you want to just pass Section), or 
you've got a singular vs plural issue?

Can you show us the code around line 50 which is fingered by the warning 

I note that message isn't too helpful, and has been improved in the next 
release of Catalyst..
