For a couple of days I'm observing msnbots with malformed http headers from 65.55.209.xx which is a legitimate msn ip range. See example below. Note that From header is malformed and is messing up the IMS header as well. Is anybody else seeing this?

Accept: text/html, text/plain, text/xml, application/*, Model/vnd.dwf, drawing/x-dwf
Accept-Encoding: gzip, deflate
Connection: Close
Content-Length: 0

Host: ***
User-Agent: msnbot/1.1 (+http://search.msn.com/msnbot.htm)

UPDATE: I tried contacting MS via their Live Search blog contact form. But i got a "User unknown" returned email. Is it me, or do i get the impression that Live Search is falling apart?
