How about other DTDs, e.g. those for HTML? I would suspect this is due
documents that have an incorrect XHTML FPI and so get recognized as HTML
documents; since the XHTML DTDs are not in the SGML catalog, OpenSP will
fetch the XHTML DTD specified in the SI over the network. If that is the
problem, you would however be able to reproduce it. Likewise, the custom
DTD test would have to fetch the DTD; there might be a problem in your
analysis.
