Here's the patch against 4.6.2.

First, you need to execute this SQL statement to alter the watchdog
ALTER TABLE `watchdog` ADD COLUMN `referer` varchar (128)  NOT NULL 

Next, the patch includes two one-line changes, one each for
includes/bootstrap.inc and modules/watchdog.module
(you may have to split up the patch file and run them one by one or

I get plenty of "page not found" warnings when I look at the admin page,
but I have no way to fix them. The pages (rightfully) no longer exist,
so I'd simply like to stop links pointing there. If the referering page
was part of the message, that would be far more helpful.

Referer / referrer loggin would be usefull for a more than just page not
found warnings. I'ld say include them where available.

This requires minor changes in bootstrap.inc (watchdog() function), the
watchdog module, as well as an alteration to the watchdog table. I'll
try to make a patch
