These errors are usually caused by libwww-perl bugs.  If you use Red Hat
9, it comes with a too old one (5.65).  Try upgrading to a newer
version, see http://validator.w3.org/docs/checklink.html#install

The link checker should refuse to run with libwww-perl < 5.66, but
unfortunately that "hard" versioned dependency was forgotten from 4.0;
it has been added in the latest CVS version.
