[tdwg-guid] TDWG LSID Resolver broken?

I'm just guessing but it could be DNS? is there a hardcoded or cached address in the TDWG resolver that needs to be cleared? We had a similar problem when we moved our IPNI server and changed the DNS entries

VERY strange!

This LSID does not work:


But this one does:


Even though these are the exact same record from the exact same database, and the latter resolver was created from the exact same source code as the former.

Both seem to work fine on Rod's tester page, except the latter has one failure (5a), while in the former it is just a warning.

Go figure....

        Hi All,

        I'm testing the ZooBank LSID resolver, and I can't seem to get any of my
        LSIDs to work with the TDWG LSID resolver (http://lsid.tdwg.org/) They used
        to work a couple months ago, but now they don't.

        For example:


        This works fine on Rod's Tester site:


        Any ideas???
