Oh, that explains everything.

It's just that the ./chalo page has been the same way for a long time
(it's script generated) and I was almost certain it was buggy because
the report changed when the actual site hadn't changed a single line
of code.

With no indicator that the CSS validator had changed its validation
scheme, I had no clue where it was sourcing these errors from.  As I
said, only a week or two previous I was getting 100% validation on
both pages.
