That's the new way for Seaside to serve static files.

You either need to create a directory seaside/files/PRPierLibrary/
with your files or add the following rewrite rule right after enabling
the rewrite engine:

RewriteRule ^/seaside/files/PRPierLibrary/(*.)$
http://www.my_domain.org:9999//seaside/files/PRPierLibrary/$1 [P,L]
