Well, that could be yet another issue. The case I was seeing was that the HTTP 
server allows the request, but then the RTMP server kills the connection. If I 
don't talk to the HTTP server, the RTMP session proceeds without any trouble. 
(Then again, maybe setting the referrer here will fix that too, I'll play with 
it a bit...)
