Okay, that seems to work in PHP, but now I have to get it working in
ColdFusion (sort of a side project of the main project).  The problem
appears to be on their end and I've posted to their mailing list, but
I'd be interested in any thoughts this community may have as well:

ColdFusion does not appear to pass the REQUEST_URI variable in its CGI
scope as expected.  The value there appears to be the landing page URI
rather than the URI originally requested.

Are there any other server variables that might include this
information?  Has anyone ever run into this issue in a ColdFusion
environment before?
