HelpServer 2.x has a bug in Xtensive.HelpServer.Web.Content, Xtensive.HelpServer.Web.dll If we try to access HS with GET http request with referer then we get UnhandledException. The problem is in the OnInit method of Xtensive.HelpServer.Web.Content class:

if (urlReferrer != null)
    int index = base.Request.Url.AbsolutePath.IndexOf("Content.aspx");
    string str = base.Request.Url.AbsolutePath.Substring(0, index);

see? Looking in URL's string for case sensetive substring is a problem for sure! "index" is -1.

The issue is preventing using HS with SharePoint Search Server. During crawling of all pages it gets HTML with UnhandledException error text.
