OK, I'll look into this.

This is... odd. What server are you using the API through? It looks  
like you're connecting to our development server, because the file  
paths on validator.w3.org are different.

Not sure, I know that the parts of the code about direct input, and  
the soap API, haven't changed at all in the past months, but the  
codebase has, as Sam Ruby has been maintaining the feedbalidator  
software very diligently. I'll give the debug trace a look and see  
with Sam if we can figure out what's going on.

Thanks!
