I'm more that willing to accept if there is some fallibility in the tests and its great that there is validation. I'm seriously unsure where such error may be since i've been tracing http request\responses through in-browser network tools. i'm going to repeat capturing whats on the wire instead and if i still can't find the same results i'll setup a public test case which everyone can use.

thanks,
