pygopherd: can't process html links in subdirectories

After fiddling with gophernicus, then pygopherd, I noticed that pygopherd has trouble processing html links depending on which gophermap file they're found in. If an html link or html file appears in /var/gopher/gophermap, it's processed fine. However, if the gophermap file is somewhere deeper, say, /var/gopher/if-archive/gophermap, it fails like this:

   3'/if-archive/URL:http://www.ifarchive.org' does not exist (no handler
   found) error.host 1

Why is this happening?

I'm split between using pygopherd or gophernicus. Pygopherd works well with systems. I like gophernicus a bit better, but the author is still having trouble getting it to work with systemd.

This is /var/gopher/gophermap:
