I've not seen this before, but I received this error while doing a version
scan today:

Warning: Servicescan failed to fill ostype_template (subjectlen: 1080,

What version of Nmap is it? This is a bug in the nmap-service-probes
file. If it's from a released version, we just need to know the version
number (nmap -V), otherwise send us line 9962 of nmap-service-probes.

It turns out the match line was too loose and it was matching an HTTP
reply. I made it a bit more specific, and also added a fingerprint for
the server you sent me.
