Subject Re: Problems Parsing Request Paramers
Date Tue, 27 Sep 2005 18:05:35 GMT
Hi,
Could it be the referer URL is too long, causing the query string to be ignored
or dropped?  There's a limit (2048 characters, I think?) on GET requests in
some browsers.  But actually, you're seeing this on the server, so I'm not
sure.  Can you try testing with less parameters or an otherwise shorter query
string?
