Apart from the script timing out (no idea why that might happen), this is 
exactly the problem I saw when the cached templates in my local validator 
instance were out of date.  Touching the *.tmpl files that validator uses does 
fix it for me and http://qa-dev.w3.org/wmvs/HEAD/ (where it is done 
automatically when my cronjob pulls code from Mercurial).

Make sure that you touched the correct *.tmpl files, that validator can write 
to its cached templates dir, and that no pre-1.1 version of the validator uses 
the same template cached dir after you've touched the files (otherwise an 
older version may end up recompiling the templates and replacing the cached 
ones with versions that will again be unsuitable for 1.1).  If touching the 
*.tmpl doesn't help, removing everything in the template cache dir could be 
worth trying.
