OK, I'm stupid :)
I don't need mechanize to fake the referring page at all, but rails 
itself in a redirect_to statement.
The flow is as such:
a. mechanize retrieves a page and scrapes it for a url
b. a redirect_to to that url is sent back to the cient
c. he goes and fetches the url (only right now he gets redirected since 
his referrer is wrong.

I am trying to do the following to set the referrer:
request.env['HTTP_REFERER'] = 'http://www.something.com
redirect_to "www.site.com"

but when I sniff the headers, it's still set to my own site...

Any ideas?
Thanks!
