There's always one that spoils it for the many, huh.  Sorry about
that.

May I suggest that the HTTP library user-agent be changed to:
Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-GB; rv:1.8.1.14)
Gecko/20080404 Firefox/2.0.0.14

In the meantime, I've uninstalled Nmap from my computer and I'm
contacting its author for assistance.

That's too bad.  I'd like to suggest though that we /not/ just hijack
the Firefox user agent.  Instead, this is probably a perfect place for
us to make use of --script-args to provide an optional user agent
override.

Something like:

- --script-args http-user-agent="whatever you want"

I'll hack this up in all my copious free time unless someone has a good
nay or alternative.
