I've found that pointing start_url at an address like
http://my.site.com/ gives that sort of problem. Try (if you
aren't already) using a start_url of
http://real.one21.net/sites/waterworks/welcome.htm and limit_urls_to set
to http://real.one21.net/sites/waterworks/ or similar.

BTW the News Java applet on your home page tends to lose characters off
the right end on my browser (Navigator 4.5 under Linux). Don't ask
about my fonts - I've had great fun getting them to display readable
stuff for script-defined fonts ;-(

Cheers
