If I disable the cache via the Firefox Web Developer extension or use
Ctrl+F5 to reload while doing the same, the image still fails to load.

The image shows up as a broken image placeholder in the latest releases
of Google Chrome, IE, Opera, and Safari on Windows Vista (in addition to
the error message shown in Firefox).

Firefox reports that the above-referenced PNG image is being sent with
the correct MIME type, but
<http://jigsaw.w3.org/css-validator/images/vcss> being served as
image/gif and is an animated GIF image with two frames in Firefox's Page
Info window.
