Looks like there's something wrong with the validator's proxy/frontend
configuration; while /check/referer is deprecated since 2003 (the
current way to do it is /check?uri=referer), it should AFAIK continue to

It seems you've already that change to the document mentioned above, but
/check/referer test cases can be found at http://validator.w3.org/dev/tests/
