Are you by any chance running NMAP on Windows? If so, you might try
using the Linux/Unix version instead and see if you don't get better

What could be up with the remote machine that stops nmap IDing the OS it is
Well, the info at NetCraft could have been spoofed, or old. The system using that IP could have at one time been
running the OS/web server identified, but perhaps no longer. And without knowing more about what arguments you used
for nmap, and the actual output, it might be difficult to tell you why nmap couldn't figure it out...there are
several possibilities there.
