Need help deciphering this LiveJournal OpenID error

Here's the source:

It comes from this line:

        return $self->_fail("naive_verify_failed_return") unless $args{'lifetime'};

So it did a dumb-mode (stateless) check_authentication request to your
server, but wasn't able to find a "lifetime:<n>\n" row where <n> was

I find these commands very useful:

server# tcpdump -s 0 -w net_dump port 80
server# scp net_dump user at
desktop$ ethereal net_dump
