This is an LWP bug. I'm checking into the status of the fix now. If there
is no fix yet I'll try to get a fix into LWP instead of working around it
in the Validator. IMO we can live with this glitch for a while longer if

BTW, do you have a URI handy which demonstrates the problem? I could just
fake it of course, but it's always better to have a real test case to check
