Software error when validating URL with '+' signs

When trying to validate an URL with '+' signs in it,
I get the following error:

  Software error:

Nested quantifiers in regex; marked by <-- HERE in m/^/check?uri=http://missingno.ifrance.com/C++ <-- HERE .php/ at (eval 18) line 14.

For help, please send mail to the webmaster ([no address given] 
<mailto:%5Bno%20address%20given%5D>), giving this error message and the 
time and date of the error.

The URL I was trying to validate was:
which is a valid XHTML file (it has no content, only the structure)

I was unable to reproduce this bug using a local copy of the validator 
(v 0.7.2)

Home this helps
