Might be. Might be a problem of n# of simultaneous 
connection - try to avoid to "overload" these servers, 
using 1 simultaneous connection, and limiting the 
bandwidth. Some servers are setting stricter limits 
(per requests or bandwidth) for each incoming IP
If you have a permanent connection, using 1 connection 
and limiting the bandwidth to 1-2KB is fine, you can 
leave the engine working one night if necessary, and 
this won't cause bandwidth problems

HTTP referer is supported by HTTrack :)
