I'm in a computer science class as it is, and we were surprised to find that 
our new computers just updated at the start of the semester, were unable to use 
the Validation service because of this same bug.

The side effects of your 'fix' are too great and might lead the professor or 
passerby's to think that things are awry.  404 errors that IE normally handles 
end up giving dll errors, sometimes causing IE to stop responding normally.  In 
effect breaking the active session should too many of these occur during that 
session (back/forward stop working).

If you guys could suggest a better solution, me, and the class I'm taking part 
in would appreciate it.

The professor finds it annoying that she can't give an example of how to 
validate your file(s).
