I suspect that the validator.w3.org instance times out when trying to retrieve
the document, it takes a long time before the 500 Internal Server Error occurs.
 Why that happens, I don't know, but one possibility is that the
www.studiocattaneo.biz server or something between it and the validator does
that for connection attempts originating from validator.w3.org.

I have lowered the default user agent inactivity timeout to 45 seconds in the
development version (was LWP's default, documented to be 180 seconds on my
box); that should at least cause a better error message than "500 Internal
Server Error" in more cases also on validator.w3.org.  See bug 4985 for more
