A transcript below shows it working with MSV, Altova, Saxon and Xerces.

You haven't indicated why you are using 
xs:all.  I've learned that when order is not 
important, it is better for downstream processing 
to impose one.  As well, the user doesn't get the 
impression that they have to guess which order to 
use, nor do they think they are getting any 
additional semantic by choosing a particular order.

I'm sorry I have no other suggestions to offer you.
