Well in this case, the URL you gave is actually a 404 error even

listed it as a warning for being 0 byte even if there had been no

I'll attach the list of errors and warnings I generated a few days ago
(only Sven will get it, since the list will get rid of the attachment,
as usual).
That's quite some work to be done for someone with a little time, and
a few grep or sed commands. :-)
