[Kete] web links not saving

Hello again,

Basically the links in question are coming back with internal server  
errors on their site when Kete tries to check when the link is valid.

This is due to something on their site's part and they should be  
alerted.  Essentially their site can't handle requests from the Ruby  
Net/HTTP library that Kete is using and they should.  In other words,  
they probably handle all standard browsers ok, but run into problems  
with this kind of request.

I'll improve the message in Kete to make it clear that people should  
raise the issue with the sites in question.
