[twill] Referrer issues

I've been messing around with Twill, and I have to say I'm impressed. 55 
lines of Python, and I'm 95% of the way towards a Google Base 
auto-submitter. However, there's one remaining issue. I'm trying to do a 
form submit (original url is http, as is the submit url), from a form 
with no submit button. Using the submit() method seems to mostly work, 
but as I wasn't getting the expected response, I switched on the http 
debugging. This told me that I wasn't sending a referer header, which is 
causing the other end to reject my query.

Any ideas how to fix this? I'm using Python 2.4.0 with Twill 0.8 
(installed via 'easy_install twill') running on a Windows 2000 machine.
