I'd prefer if there was a check for $_SERVER['SERVER_NAME'] at every 
header, and if there was a problem, it simply died with an error message 
and login prompt to change the site URI.

Anyone who's just moved the url of the site will then *know* what's up, 
and there's not a chance of anyone's slip showing, just a default login
