OpenID verification failure on OpenId URL (JAVA)

I am trying to let users to login with yahoo OpenId in to my application using this [code]http://code.google.com/p/apps-marketplace-resources/source/browse/trunk/helloworld-java/src/main/java/com/google/code/samples/apps/marketplace/OpenIdServlet.java?r=13/).

I tied connecting to "yahoo.com" for open id which failed to process the reqeust, later according to [this] http://developer.yahoo.com/forum/OpenID-General-Discussion/Using-yahoo-com-as-provider-URL-fails-/1283442925000-b720c83c-4ee0-378a-ac29-d37ffe6b0647, I changed it to "me.yahoo.com" it worked fine, but not i figured out that the request is actually failing, resulting an exception saying

verification failed for http://me.yahoo.com/a/{id}..

To my surprise, the same code I used works fine with the other application i hosted. Is there any thing related to IP/ Geographic specification problems which raises an exception while openid url verification.

Which bothers me more is, the error is not raised consistently, it works fine sometimes.
