SharePoint Migration, and dundas webparts

I'm currently running into an issue with Dundas webparts.

I'm trying to migrate a SharePoint content database from 2007 to 2010.  After the migration, I'm able to access the site collection.

When I go to a page that has an embeded chart, the data it displays is incorrect.

Dundas tells me this is because the chart uses a absolute path, instead of relative.  They said all the charts would have to be re-created, which isn't possible, or the web application would have to be named the same name, which isn't possible.

Any ideas, such as a massive find and replace?

If the links were on a page, you could use PowerShell, but since they are inside a Dundas web part, I'm not sure.

I'm curious why the URL is changing for the upgrade.

The URL isn't changing, it's just that the URL for the webapp is hardcoded and does not use a relative path, according to dundas.  I'm not sure how to get at the code for the dundas .net assembly either.

ok I guess I'm confused. If the URL for the web app isn't changing, why does it matter if it's hardcoded or not?
