Go back to the validator and run it again.
If it is stopping, there must be an error.
Look at it carefully. If it is able to
identify the URL for the policy it will say
something like this:

Step 1-3: Policy URI check
/w3c/p3p.xml has no warnings or errors.
Message: P3P policy indicated at line 4 can be accessed.
P3P policy for http://p3pbook.com/ is
[http://p3pbook.com/w3c/policy1.xml#policy]

I'm guessing the problem is with the about line of your policy reference
file.
