Microsoft could have servers all over the world in various countries, that could be identified by location i.e. Canada, USA, China, India, etc..
What I suggest is that when the webmaster tools user submits a verified URL, those servers would independently visit that URL and cache a thumbnail and the code of the website it is being given to read. This would help visually identify DNS problems that are unfortunately very common. The results would then be displayed in the control panel showing the thumbnail and a scrollable text area with the code read by that particular server.
Hope this helps.
P.S. Can you check out what the problem is with www.algarvecarhire.pt? It is a very cool website, but somehow Windows Live Search does not agree..
