I dug into this a bit and reported it upstream along with a quick and dirty 
patch that gets things going again: 

Validator appears to work after that hack/change, but it's not the end of the 
story for the link checker.  It is additionally apparently similary affected 
by tainted data in printf()/sprintf()'s format argument (see also Perl 5.10's 
perldelta).  Maybe just a matter of using -AutoLaunder with Config::General 
(like validator already does), will look into it.
