I've tested this a couple of times with a few separate link checker
instances, but haven't been able to reproduce.  That link has always
worked ok, but there are others in your page which time out and cause
delays which may contribute to the problem.

Are you using the "summary only" mode of the link checker?  If, see
http://validator.w3.org/docs/checklink.html#issues and try checking in
"normal", not "summary only" mode.
