Completely random IE bug

I have a completely random IE bug. I have a web server: let’s assume that it’s called terriers.foo.com. If I request a page http://terriers.foo.com/test.html, and follow a link from there to http://terriers.foo.com/test2.html, test2.html does not get the HTTP_REFERER environment variable: it’s empty. However, terriers.foo.com can also be called electra (a local alias). If I request http://electra/test.html and follow the link to http://electra/test2.html, test2 does get a referrer! Why! This is really, really annoying, and I can find neither documentation of it nor any ideas on how to fix it. ——-
