I got it to work...

Bad page: http://www.eccosys.net/test.htm
Target site: http://beerandspeech.org

If you click the link you get the bounce page - if you go to the site
directly you get the normal page.

In fact this only breaks the linkage from
http://www.eccosys.net/test.htm - the link on the front page works fine

Apache code

RewriteEngine On
RewriteCond %{HTTP_REFERER} http://www.eccosys.net/test.htm
RewriteRule ^.* http://www.google.com/search?q=cheesecakes [L]
RewriteRule ^/$ http://www.beerandspeech.org/bounce.htm

Interestingly - the RewriteRule for Google there means that if you try
to follow a link from eccosys.net/test.htm to my site you get a google
listing of pages about Cheesecakes

Let me know if that works
