  Aside from the fact that relying upon HTTP_REFERRER is problematical,
  1) you mention a script, is this a cgi script?  what language is
     it written in?  Is the configuration correct for passing/reading
     HTTP variables for this script?

  2) How are you testing this?  You make mention of IE6.  How is IE6
     getting the referrer information to pass to your script?  Is it
     passing any referrer information to the script?
