Gavin or Flint, can you reproduce this issue? While testing in Europe it works fine because there are no parameters in the URL.
Sounds like a problem caused by Google Toolbar, from reading that thread? The default Firefox search bar doesn't use the "rlz" parameter at all.
ahh, 100% I will follow up with Google instead.

I work on the Google Toolbar team, and we're working to resolve this bug. I'll update our known issues page when this is fixed: http://www.google.com/support/toolbar/bin/static.py?hl=en&page=known_issues.cs In the meantime, Google Toolbar users can click the "Google" logo button to the left of the Google Toolbar's search box to visit Google.com.
