JWebUnit Non HTML content

We are using jwebunit v3 to test our webpages.
but in one particular test I am somtimes getting a runtime exception "Non HTML content" in the getCurrentPage method. it is always exactly at the same point, but not all the time (damn what is that word).

I am guessing it is because it is a large complicated test (so not able to produce a small snappy example).

has anyone else had this? as I can't find a single question about it in google.

An intermittent error without any code isn going to be virtually impossible to answer. And I agree reams of code isn't better.

I think you'll have to do the traditional troubleshooting. Keep making it smaller until the problem goes away (in which case you know specifically where it lies) or you have a small example.

I was hoping for a miracle, "oh yes I had that it was because...".

This isn't a high enough priority at work for me to be allowed to spend the hours it would take to issolate it.

and thank you Intermittent, thats the word.
I agree. Here's the link:
