Works like a charm for me. Are you sure that you are sending a referer? If
you use an odd browser or going through some sort of proxy it may be that
the referer URL isn't getting passed along to the Validator. Since it has
no URL it gets redirected to the home page.

The regression tests run fine in this regard and there's been no changes to
the Validator in the last two months.
