Interesting Google Webmaster Tools Misfeature (Re:Sitemap)

I recently uploaded a sitemap for a new website to google and It looks like google webmaster tools do not accept sitemap containing just single url. The error it reports is “Missing XML tag”.

What’s even more interesting is that it took more then one hour for webmaster tools to realize that (i.e. sitemap status was Pending for about two hours) while sitemap with 3 more urls got parsed in less then 15 minutes.
