Comment (by umccullough):

 For reference, the (non-working) user agent we started with was:

 {{{Mozilla/5.0 (compatible; U; Haiku x86; en) AppleWebKit/536.10 (KHTML,
 like Gecko) Haiku/R1 WebPositive/1.1 Safari/536.10}}

 Removing the U; seems to help a bit, and getting rid of the OS version at
 the end of the string, and moving it into the parenthesized area at the
 beginning seems to help as well (and that's where most OSes put it) - also
 you can't put a slash in the OS version or the parser google uses seems to
 get confused.
