it is not a problem on meta redirection. the problem is that the new site, the
server we were redirected to with a 302 redirection, must not get the
previous referrer, with other words, a server redirection is not a user
action upon which the referrer header is supposed to get set.
also referers must get cleared.

(use cvs annotate please when you wonder why code is there which you think
should not be there).
