Even more, you will have to deal with problems from those users who
install various personal firewalls, since a lot of them (like Norton
Personal Firewall) don't allow sending HTTP_REFERER at all, IIRC. Using
it 4 years ago was ok, but my recent experience with HTTP_REFERER is
that you shouldn't use it these days unless you really have to (like
tracking which external site surfer comes from). Using it for anything
else (especially for security) is a guaranteed PITA.
