I think the issue is this.

Given the input:

	.test { background-position : 1px 1px; }

The CSS validator reports:

	Congratulations! No Error Found.

The report page of the validator also displays all the valid CSS found. This section reports:

	Valid CSS information

	.test {
		background-position : [1px, 1px];

So where the validator should be providing a copy of the stylesheet with errors removed, it is introducing a new error instead.
