It seems that Passenger is not completely compliant with WSGI:


It might be worth telling Dreamhost this and/or seeing if they have any 
existing documentation about such matters. Meanwhile, you could probably fix 
this by modifying the MoinMoin/wsgiapp.py file that presumably gets deployed 
when using WSGI.


P.S. Sorry not to respond to your previous question about this, but I have 
been occupied with other matters, and since nobody is paying anyone to work on 
(and provide support for) Moin as far as I know, a timely response is not 
always guaranteed.
