A thread at Google Webmaster Help has a confirmed report of a bug with verifying certain sites in Google Webmaster Tools.

The issue was reported by the webmaster of http://nhschoicespreview.nhs.uk/. The domain would not verify.

Googler, Dennis G., who is the man behind verifying websites in Webmaster Tools, said:

It looks like you found a bug in our code. It currently does not believe that nhs.uk is a valid domain. We'll get a fix out soon. Sorry for the inconvenience.

I am not sure if this is more widespread than a single domain, but I suspect so. I just enjoy reporting these very advanced topics.

I hate the big that makes you verify the www and non-www version of your site separately before you can go in and change your preferred domain. Dumb.
