This server seems to be returning 500's if there is no 'Host:'
header specified on incoming requests. (does NN6 really not
supply a Host: header!? If so, that's a terrible bug. I'm away
from my usual desktop system right now so I can't check easily.)

Anyway, I don't know why tim would have had trouble using the
validator with his site; it works now and nothing has changed on
this side.
