   I think a bug has crept into the link checker recently. 
I used to be able to recursively check my pages without any 
problems.  Now, the link checker gets lost in the recursion -
it jumps to pages that are not on my site (but that I link to),
and starts checking them!  For example, I have a link on each of
my pages to the w3c validator, and the link checker starts 
checking the validator results for broken links... 
   I think the correct behavior should be that the link checker 
only checks pages which are in the same domain as the original request.
I first noticed the problem a month or more ago, and I am surprised that 
it has not been fixed already, which is why I am writing to this address.
  Note that I was checking the site http://peter-a-andrews.com, with
summary only, and recursive turned on.  Thanks in advance for any
help you can give.  Please let me know if/when it will be fixed,
what I may be doing wrong, or why my expectations of the link checker's 
behavior are incorrect.
