One piece of info I didn't notice from quickly skimming through this thread is 
what is the version of the validator you installed?  1.0 was released 
recently, I suggest trying with it unless you already have.

The weird line numbers suggest to me that they might be actually reports 
originating from errors accessing/parsing the DTDs, not the documents [0].  
Perhaps your validator sgml-lib isn't set up properly, or its catalog doesn't 
work for some reason and you receive an error when validator tries to access 
external entities online (you should be able to check if it does that using a 
network analyzer, for example Wireshark).
