This is an instance of http://www.w3.org/Bugs/Public/show_bug.cgi?id=737
http://jigsaw.w3.org/css-validator/validator?uri=weblog.bananasontoast.org
would also give the errors you note. It seems that the validator has not
been updated since that fix. The Validator is actually right,

  background: #5a7a91 url("./swirl.gif") no-repeat 5px center;
  background: url("./theme.png") no-repeat center 4px;

Both mix lengths and keywords for background-position which is not
allowed in CSS 2.0,

  http://www.w3.org/TR/REC-CSS2/colors.html#propdef-background-position

For e.g.

<http://jigsaw.w3.org/css-validator/validator?text=a{background-position:center%201px}>

you would get the same result.
