In the database, no one at all. There is a Geeklog session in the 
cookies that is destroyed during login. But before it is destroyed 
the database record referenced by the cookie could store the original 
referrer. No need for extra post parameters that can be faked. No 
need to deal with $_SESSION. Just wrap the "display login" in a 
function and it handles getting the return URL into the session record.
