OMG - I don't know who's dumber, me or EZProxy.
It finally occurred to me - and here it is for future reference.
When the proxy user calls the script, the resulting html output is fed back to him through the proxy server. EZProxy uses a predefined list of absolute urls that it should identify and rewrite on a page. Well, apparently it's not smart enough to distinguish between an actual link and some text on the page that matches one of its predefined urls.
I modified the script to send my debugging output to a local file instead of stdout, and lo and behold, there's
base_url = http://123.456.789.000
Just shoot me now.
Thanks again for the help.
