Can it just be endPoint in
shindig.container.Service.prototype.initializeOsapi_() not configured
ie: is apiHost_ and apiPath_ specified as to what you want?

window.__CONTAINER is initialized by init.js. This piggy-backs on the query
param &container= when common container JS is script sourced via Shindig
feature-serving servlet with /gadgets/js/container.js?c=1&container=xxx.
 init.js is already part of container.js, and get executed after all
container JS.

Please change on the server side, in DefaultIframeUriManager (or in your
class extending it). Client side should just consume the URL verbatim, and
no longer munge on it.
However, I'd need to see the actual code change, so uploading your changes
to will be great.
