Forms Authentication & ReturnUrl

Last Modified: 2008-01-16
Here's my problem, should be simple enough to understand

In development, my application is located here

But in production, it is deployed like so
http://mydomain.com/mypage.aspx <-- removing "myapp" from the url

But when I try to hit a page when I am not authenticated, I get bumped to the login page which looks like this:

http://mydomain.com?ReturnUrl=%2fmyapp%2fmypage.aspx, so after a successful login, they get a nice 404 error, because

http://mydomain.com/myapp/mypage.aspx doesn't exist

Any ideas on how I can instruct forms authentication to remove the "/myapp" from the returnurl?
