Excellent! It's applied and committed to CVS:

    http://dev.w3.org/cvsweb/validator/httpd/cgi-bin/check.diff?r1=1.50&r2=1.51

but I haven't made this the working version on validator.w3.org yet.

(It's running on my test server: http://validator.w3.org:8000/ )

I want to make sure all my test cases work:

    http://validator.w3.org:8000/dev/tests/

but I'm too tired to do it tonight.

From a quick glance, it seems there are at least a couple minor
things that will need resolving; e.g. on:

    http://validator.w3.org:8000/check?uri=http://www.w3.org/

the last modified and character encoding fields reported are a
little strange. (This may be a result of mis-patching on my part.)

I expect this will be easy to fix, but not tonight. :)
