[Catalyst] IE6 shows page cannot be displayed

I am having a problem with IE6 not displaying the page after a form has 
been submitted. I can call up a form, fill it out, no problem. When I 
submit it, I get 'Page cannot be displayed".  This works fine in 
Firefox, but not IE6.  Also, the form data does get written to the 
database in both browsers.

I don't have any choice but to use IE6.

It is calling the proper link and it looks like it is supposed to work.  
Here is the output from the console. The sub that loads the form is 
/prior/new_prior  and the page that should load after the form is 
submitted is /prior/list_prior

So, it seems to redirect the page to the list_prior as it is supposed to 
but then for some reason, the new_prior is reloaded instead and I get a 
page cannot be displayed error.

Here is my code, in case it matters.

=head2 new_prior

Create a Prior Approval application


sub new_prior : Local FormConfig('prior/new_prior.yml') {
 my ($self, $c) = @_;

 # load the new record object into the stash
 $c->stash->{object} = $c->model('DB::Prior')->new_result({});

 # Check permissions
   unless $c->stash->{object}->create_allowed_by($c->user->get_object);

 # Clicked the submit button and the form passed error checking
 if ($c->stash->{form}->submitted_and_valid) {

   # Force the username into the 'submitted_by' field
   $c->stash->{form}->add_valid('submitted_by', $c->user->username);

   # Force the status_id to 1
   $c->stash->{form}->add_valid('status_id', 1);

   # Write the record to the resultset

   # Update the status message
   $c->flash->{status_msg} = 'Record created';

   # Redirect to the list_prior page

  # Escape this subroutine

 # First load or form is reloaded due to failing error checking
 } else {

   # Re-evaluate the form


 # Run the code necessary to rename the repeatable elements to be 
compatible with wforms.js

 # Necessary to handle the hints that work work with wforms.js

 # Set the logo
 $c->stash->{given_logo} = '/static/images/library.png';

 # Set the title
 $c->stash->{given_title} = 'Prior Approval';

 # Set the page template that is used
 $c->stash->{template} = 'prior/edit_prior.tt2';


Someone else seemed to have a similair problem a while back, but there 
isn't a resolution.
