[Seaside] Bookmarkable urls

Its probably happening because when you access


the default WADispatcher looks for the app configured to respond to that 
path (/whatever) and finds nothing.

When you access the above address does it open your default app or 
respond with "Not Found /whatever" ?

Put a halt in the


and follow the execution up and down the stack to see whats happening.

I think starting an instance of the ZnZincServerAdaptor like this:

	| adaptor |
	adaptor := ZnZincServerAdaptor startOn: 9091.
	adaptor default server register.
	adaptor default requestHandler: (WAAdmin defaultDispatcher handlers at: 

Should, for that port (9091), direct all requests to your app,  bypass 
the default WADispatcher, and fix your issues.

This can also be helpful to be able to run the config & status apps on a 
port that's only available on the host system rather than one proxied to 
by apache or nginx.
