That's weird... It should work fine. What validator are you using?
That might be a work-around.
Two points, just in case: You must have a blank line between records (After a
Disallow line and before the next User-agent line). And you need to write your
robots.txt file using an editor that will not put carriage-return/linefeed pairs
at the end of each line. robots.txt is a Unix file, and it only wants to see a
linefeed. I use Microsoft Word in ASCII mode with "Linefeed Only" selected
when I have to work on a robots.txt file on a Windows sytem. These options
are available in Word's "Save As" dialog box. The Notepad editor will put
CR/LF pairs in the file, and it won't validate.
