if nobody answers, maybe you can resort to reading the mongrel sources ;-)

look in lib/mongrel.rb for

              # Process each handler in registered order until we run
out or one finalizes the response.
              handlers.each do |handler|
                handler.process(request, response)
                break if response.done or client.closed?

              # And finally, if nobody closed the response off, we finalize it.
              unless response.done or client.closed?

The sources are pretty readable, so you should find your way pretty
fast. I suspect that the problem is that the "normal processing"
plugin is not there. See the lines just after those I posted. Or add
some traces there to see what's going on(like what handlers are tried
