The wither will not spawn if there are blocks underneath the arms of the T of soul-sand when trying to spawn the wither in any difficulty.
W= Wither Skeleton Skull, S = Soul Sand, X = Empty Space,
W W W
S S S
X S X
If there are any blocks in the X spaces the Wither will fail to spawn.
This was also seen in an Episode of Mind-crack Season 5 from sethbling when they were trying to spawn a wither and it wouldn't work as there was tall grass underneath the soul sand. After they moved the soul sand it worked fine as there was nothing underneath the T
