Bugger! I keep forgetting that frames aren't properly supported.
They're being implemented, slowly.

Ok. Is the site wrong to do what it does or is the sending of referer
headers something waiting to be implemented for Netsurf?
The site shouldn't rely on it being sent, certainly. NetSurf should
probably send it, though (it now does, as I've just checked in a patch).
If anyone spots a situation where the referer is incorrectly sent, then
it's a bug and should be reported.
