Thanks, Joshua. This helped me isolate the problem which was a  
misbehaving RewriteMap that was returning non-null values when I  
thought it should be returning null values - something that I don't  
think would ever have occurred to me from just looking at the error  
messages - and was causing a [PT] to be triggered to a fully- 
qualified type URL. Amazingly, the request  
was in fact handled correctly after spewing the error message.
