The web server is horribly broken. On a HEAD request it returns

  HTTP/1.1 200 OK
  Server: Microsoft-IIS/5.0

and something similar to a GET request. The validator or the underlying
HTTP module gets confused by this response (as do browsers, as they
would show everything after the first Set-Cookie header as text).
