Trying that URI with a browser, I got a timeout “server not  
responding”.

I suspect that in the case of the older version of the link checker,  
your browser would simply time out while waiting for the checker to  
process that link. Trying with our soon-to-be-released development  
instance of the link checker:
http://qa-dev.w3.org/wlc/checklink?uri=lipn.fr/seminaires
seems to work better.

We will soon release the version 4.4 of the link checker, which should  
resolve this issue.
