Thanks for the tip Henryk -- I will certainly need to use a custom
URIResolver.
Our framework actually allows URIs to be chained together in an ad-hoc
manner to provide things like remote file access.  So my current 'solution'
was really a hack that chopped off everything but the last URI.  A custom
resolver should be just the ticket.
