Then I do not understand why this is a security/privacy issue then ? I mean if 
the server did the redirecting using 302, we simply send the referrer 
anyways, so I fail to see why doing it from KHTML on meta redirection/refresh 
would be a problem. Both Mozilla and IE do the same thing as far as I can 
tell. Also it actual breaks the site that was originally mentioned from 
working properly because the correct referrer information is not sent.
