The error recovery heuristic the parser uses is that if it sees a line with no leading whitespace and no ':' in it, it assumes that the blank line between the headers and the body was missing.  It does not, however, register defect for this case.

Attached is a patch.  It introduces a new Defect and deprecates an old one that could never have been issued, so I'm not going to back port it.  (Especially seeing as no one has ever complained about it...I found the bug through code inspection.)
