--- Comment #4 from Michael Kay <mike@saxonica.com> ---
We have drilled more deeply into this problem and discovered that the
difference between environments that work and those that don't is the choice of
XML parser - Apache Xerces gets it right, the JDK parser (even in JDK 8) gets
it wrong. It's unbelievable that the JDK parser is still buggy after so many
years, but that seems to be the case.

We will once again raise a JDK bug on this, and once again remind ourselves and
our users always to use the Apache parser in preference.

Meanwhile, closing this bug.
