Using IMAP App with Non-Standard Root Endpoint

I'm running Splunk on a VPS, so I am reverse proxying behind Apache. My web.conf shows the following:

[settings]
root_endpoint = /splunk
tools.proxy.on = True

I have configured my imap app appropriately (from bin/getimap.py --debug):

DEBUG:root:splunkHostPath=http://localhost:8000/splunk/

But I get errors from the debug:

DEBUG:root:decrypted splunk password
DEBUG:root:invalid literal for int() with base 10: '8000/splunk'
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "getimap.py", line 405, in getMailbox
    latestTime = self.getCacheIDForMailbox(box)
  File "getimap.py", line 253, in getCacheIDForMailbox
    splunk.mergeHostPath(self.splunkHostPath, True)
  File "/opt/splunk/lib/python2.6/site-packages/splunk/__init__.py", line 128, in mergeHostPath
    setDefault('port', int(port))
 ValueError: invalid literal for int() with base 10: '8000/splunk'
None

I've played around a fair amount with the splunkHostPath setting -- leaving off the /splunk/, leaving off the trailing /, etc., but it doesn't work (there is a 404 error if I leave it off entirely).

Is there a way to make this work when a root_endpoint is specified?

from imap.conf:

#Path to the splunk host path. If yours is different from the default change this to
#https://<hostname>:<port>
splunkHostPath = https://localhost:8089

This is for the management port (how to reach splunkd). You should probably leave it at the default. The root endpoint stuff is a red herring.

root_endpoint refers to the URL of SplunkWeb. The splunkHostPath is asking for the splunkd location.
