It's a bug in the validator's underlying SGML parser.  My fault.  When the
host was given as an IP address, lq-sp was omitting the CRLF for the Host
header.

I've fixed the problem in lq-sp-1.3.4.7, available from

http://www.htmlhelp.com/tools/validator/src/lq-sp-1.3.4.7.tar.gz

This new lq-sp is in action at
