Sorry - I didn't quite make this clear.  If my client sends a reference ID
to the MetaStar server, the server crashes.  It has nothing to do with
MetaStar clients, but I've reproduced the MetaStar server behavior with both
Isite clients and the Yaz client.

I'll investigate whether the Isite server returns an empty reference ID if
it doesn't get one from the client.  You are correct - it shouldn't do that.

Interoperability testing is A Good Thing...
