Could you try this out with the new beta version of the link checker,
http://validator.w3.org:8001/checklink

Some recursion scope related fixes have been included in the beta
version which may affect this.

(Perhaps a bit offtopic, but for more reliable link checking results,
checking and fixing HTML validity would be a good idea, there's some
work to do with the document in your URL above, for example mixed use of
HTML/XHTML style end tags which will most likely result in unexpected
things.)
