Thanks to those who responded.

I've "fixed" the problem, using brute force. Turns out that my
links on the home page needed an extra parameter, or two, so my
links are now:

<a href="_gwcgi_?a=p&p=about&c=theses&ct=1&qt=1">

which seems to have done the trick. (Not sure what ct=1 does,
but ... problem solved.)
