I'm sorry if you have already seen this message, but
I haven't seen the original in the archives nor
received it on the list.

The following test file (containing one (1) link), see
below, will kill the Link Checker.  After about 1 minute 
and 42 seconds, the browser comes back with a message
that the connection has been broken by the remote server.

I believe that the correct action would be for the 
link to be marked as questionable.  The same link in the midst
of a larger file will cause the same action and prevent
further processing of the file.

For reliable link checking results, check HTML validity first. See also CSS validity.
