I've not been able to reproduce this with any standalone version of the
validator.nu backend -- that is, using it directly through its own Web UI,
rather than using in through the validator.w3.org UI and perl interface to the
validator.nu backend.

Specifically, I have not been able to reproduce it using the Web UI at
http://qa-dev.w3.org:8888 at all, despite trying for quite a while.

But I can reproduce it easily with the validator.w3.org frontend, typically on
the first or second try.

So I can't find any problem to fix here in the validator.nu source itself. It
seems whatever the problem is, it is not a problem that occurs within an
instance of validator.nu service itself -- that is, when a validator.nu backend
communicates its own frontend. The problem instead seems to only occur when a
validator.nu backend communicates with an instance of the validator.w3.org

So to me that suggests that the problem here could instead be in the
validator.w3.org perl code that consumes data from a validator.nu backend, or
even be an OS problem or something in the local environments of the
validator.w3.org hosts.

But I suppose it could also be a problem in the validator.nu REST interface, so
I'll try that directly from a local validator.nu instance and see if I can
reproduce this but that way.
