Looks odd, as if the validator encountered an error in reading its own 
error message data, or something.

The validator generally seems to work, even for <!doctype html>. I don't 
see anything particular (validator-wise) in the document, but it 
triggers some bug (even when submitted via Direct Input, so it's not 
about HTTP headers).

I suppose the bug could be isolated using divide and conquer on the 
document (submitting it piecewise until one can find the piece that 
triggers the bug), but hopefully there is some faster way.
