I've given this another try now (still behind the Webfaction proxy), using
pull request #2321, but I'm still getting "404: Not Found".  In order to
use SockJS, must I do any configuration or should it have been automatic?
 Is there a way that I can make IPython provide more detailed log
information so that I can pinpoint why I'm getting the 404s.  Here is what
I see at the command line:

    WARNING:root:404 GET / ( 0.64ms

My config file is:

c = get_config()
c.NotebookApp.ip = '*'
c.NotebookApp.base_project_url = '/notebook/'
c.NotebookApp.base_kernel_url = '/notebook/'
c.NotebookApp.port = 26000
c.NotebookApp.open_browser = False
c.NotebookApp.webapp_settings = {'static_url_prefix':'/notebook/static/'}
c.IPKernelApp.pylab = 'inline'
c.IPKernelApp.pylab_import_all = False
