Here is the first line of a captured get request, qqCcEv#[email protected]^PGET / HTTP/1.1
Here is another first line- to the same site, [email protected] #PGET / HTTP/1.1
The wierd qq.. bytes before the 'GET', what are they for? I am getting drastically different responses depending on their content.

You're not looking at the bytes in the packets that appear before the GET request, are you? In the link-layer packet that contains the first part of the GET request (or all of it if it fits in a single TCP segment), before the GET request you'll have a TCP header, and before the TCP header you'll have an IPv4 or an IPv6 header, and before the IP header you'll probably have some link-layer header such as an Ethernet header or an 802.11 header or a PPP header or....
