There seems to be some issue with your server-side code. If I download the
document with wget, I get the partial document just like the validator (if
you enable 'Show source', you'll see that the document is truncated in the
middle of one of the img tags).
When downloading it manually with telnet, it get a document of 9291 bytes,
but the Content-Length header says 9200. So the calculation of the content
length seems to be flawed somehow.

The behaviour of the validator is correct - it downloads 9200 bytes as it
was told by your server.
