I tried changing the Server Hostname in the applications configuration
screen.  Is there somewhere else I should be tweaking?

Perhaps part of the problem is that I want to remove path elements as
well as changing the hostname.

By the way, Zope has a thing called a Virtual Host Monster that is an
elegant solution to this problem.  You put something like this in
Apache's configuration:
RewriteRule ^/special/(.*)

Zope running on port 9674 interprets that to mean you want the object
myapp/$1, and the generated URLS should appear to be from

By the way, I think it would be more natural to have the myapp appear
after the VirtualHostRoot,
but I think there's some historical reason for the other pattern
(i.e., there was no /VirtualHostRoot in the first incarnations).
