What I'm getting from this is that you are using the checklink plug-in for
Firefox (on Windows?) and it is reporting broken links when you "check this
page" is that right? You might need to be asking the author of the plug-in
if that's the case. It's certainly possible that the plug-in breaks when
robot exclusion rules are encountered.
