User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 6.0; en-US) AppleWebKit/530.5 (KHTML, like Gecko) Chrome/2.0.172.31 Safari/530.5
Build Identifier: 3.0.10

When special characters are used in referrer, the website is running on IIS with Google Analytics, it results after viewing one page a 400 bad request error. The error stays until deleting utmz cookie or until its expiration (which is 6 months I think). It makes the affected websites completly unusable.

Sorry for the mixup, the expected result is: 200 OK, not Bad request.
