Sounds like a server problem to me, one that Safari is ignoring (likely in one of their many violations of the HTTP spec).

We're probably not going to be able to troubleshoot this further without an account, though.

I've sent a private e-mail to Melissa requesting her login information for this site. I'll look into the HTTP headers once I get that information, but I suspect they're sending a broken HTTP header.

Melissa, can you attach a screen shot of the error in Camino? Command-Shift-4 will let you select an area of the screen to take a screen shot, and then you can use the "Add an attachment" link above to attach the picture to this bug.

Melissa, I still haven't heard back from you, either about the login information or in response to the question I asked in comment 2. Can you please answer both of those?

WORKSFORME (see bug 476901 comment 5), since we don't know what the problem was. Suspect INVALID, though.
