Thanks for that. I thought this issue seemed familiar. Fingers 
in too many pies and I just couldn't remember where I had seen 
it recently. It's an issue with Catalyst::Plugin::Session::State::URI.

I don't have access to the problem machine right now, but I'm 
sure this will fix it.

I think I already submitted a patch for this; yep, r13505.

t0m, any chance of a new release of C::P::Session::State::URI? 
In the meantime I'll apply the above patch to the new dev's machine.
