I can confirm that I can see this issue, in a very erratic manner.  
Sometimes the validation goes through (the CSS validates), sometimes  
the I/O error kicks in. This suggests either a network issue between  
the validator and your server, or a bug somewhere around the HTTP  
component of the CSS validator.

Yves, I see a lot of lines like this in the Jigsaw error log:
client-391(http-server-socket-clients:247): caught ClientException:  
[org.w3c.jigsaw.http.ClientException] Broken pipe
client-474(http-server-socket-clients:1433): caught ClientException:  
[org.w3c.jigsaw.http.ClientException] End Of File
client-1980(http-server-socket-clients:2582): caught ClientException:  
[org.w3c.jigsaw.http.ClientException] End Of File

Could it be the manifestation of this problem?
Could it be related to the recent switch to the jdk 1.6?
