Hi Andrey, i have managed to reproduce the problem, and i have modified the SCRIPT_NAME handling of the wsgi

First of all the PEP 333 says that if the app is mounted in the root, SCRIPT_NAME can be (read: can be) empty (but not undefined).

So for me 




are two different beasts

Someone is against this statement ?

Having said that, SCRIPT_NAME "" and "/" will map to the same app internally (the default app 0), but dynamic apps
can be defined even with an empty SCRIPT_NAME 

This will maintain backward compatibility and allow pylons apps to work out of the box (i hope)

Please clone the current mercurial repository, and retry in DynamicApps mode and with  --paste defining SCRIPT_NAME as ""
(paste wants a SCRIPT_NAME defined). If both works flawlessly i will backport this modification to the stable versions.

Thanks for your support
