Validating with XSV 1.173/1.80 of 2000/10/18 15:54:58 says everything is

Validation with XML Spy v3.5 beta 3 normally says its ok too - unless you
modify the document externally and cause XML Spy to revalidate when it
regains application focus. It then complains that simpleContent cannot have
a base (vlvx:elementPropertyType) that is a complexType with complexContent.

Who's right here? XML Spy is showing at least one bug here (reporting a
validation error intermittently). But is XSV right to allow the above?
