A quick solutino I found to this problem is to have in my application 
package a default action like this:

sub default : Private {
     my ( $self, $c ) = @_;
     $c->stash->{template} = 'invalid_request';

Then in my 'root' directory, I have a template named 'invalid_request' 
which says something like "You requested an invalid action." in an 
error-like style.
