I get an error when attempting a full search crawl of my MOSS 2007 site. The "MySite" part of sharepoint is crawled correctly, but the main sharepoint site is not.

When I check the windows event log i find the error displayed in in the code section below (translated). The user account used for crawl is domain admin for troubleshooting purposes. I can log in to the affected site using the same credentials I provided in the search crawl settings.
