Ok, got it.  Due to a stupid bug, we were pretty often passing the entire HTTP
response (including HTTP headers) to HTML::Parser.  The parser module is
apparently pretty lax wrt. this, so the issues caused were rare.

What triggered the failure in this case is HTML::HeadParser's behaviour of
expanding <meta> tags into fake HTTP headers, which in my testcase from comment
1 resulted in "X-Meta-Keywords: <style>", and the parser choked on it.

This should be fixed in CVS, and the latest development version (which will
pretty soon be released as 4.1) is running at http://qa-dev.w3.org/wlc/checklink
for testing.
