The way see it there are two possibilities:
1. There is an actual bug in your solution and my profile exposes it
2. My profile or the way I publish it is not 100% correct and the ODS is
less strict about it

In any case I doubt that my very simple foaf could be the problem. So it
is probably the way I serve the file by rewriting "foaf" to "foaf.ttl".

So I tried to create a new profile for my daughter Clara, uploaded it to
http://www.trueg.de/clara/foaf.ttl and used the WebID
http://www.trueg.de/clara/foaf.ttl#me. Sadly this does not work either.
The error is the same. But it also works in ODS.

Please let me know if you want me to try other things. SSL maybe?
