            Bug ID: 29286
           Summary: false error-500 reports
           Product: Validator
           Version: HEAD
          Hardware: PC
               URL: http://cold32.com

  Target Milestone: ---

The W3C Link Checker, when I entered http://cold32.com and allowed 10 levels of
recursion (more than needed) and set it to send the Referer, reported error-500
for some URLs but I had no problem visiting those URLs:

from <http://cold32.com/2/health/3/pneumonia-colds-and-infections.htm>:
yielding "Can't connect to www.nia.nih.gov:443" (www.nia.nih.gov:443 failed for
me (my browser twice immediately reported that "[t]he connection was reset")
but www.nia.nih.gov worked for me)

yielding "Can't connect to www.cornellurology.com:443"
(www.cornellurology.com:443 failed for me as error-404 but
www.cornellurology.com worked for me)

For this bug report, I guessed the component and the version; the version is
actually 4.81.
