lynx-dev HTTP_REFERER missing when posting from CGI

Version: Lynx 2.8.4

Lynx isn't behaving :/ It's not sending the http_referer when I post my form, but if I view source on my error page and Lynx asks to repost the data, THEN it sends an http_referer, but only the base part, not the query string.

My CGI is a two-parter; first is a GET which brings up a form, and then the form is POSTed. I need the POST to return the GET URL via HTTP_REFERER in order to ensure that it was called from my web site. I need the query string.

Here's a URL:;ref=lynx-dev

I've tried setting NO_REFERER_HEADER:FALSE in lynx.cfg, to no avail.
What do I have to do to force Lynx to behave?
