Subject: Re: DOCBOOK-APPS: xsltproc segfaults with docbook-xsl 1.51.0 - 1.52.2

Daniel Veillard said:

  Okay, I have the answer and a patch for this, finally :-)
In a nutshell it was a bug in libxslt <choose> implementation, the
<when> test expression was evaluated with the in-scope namespace list
of the <choose> node and not the one of the <when> node ... grin ...
Tiny patch enclosed, fix will be in next version, for good measure I also
ran valgind memory checker on the new code and no error are found, the
next version of xsltproc should hopefully fix the troubles people had
with recent versions of the stylesheets

True to his word, Daniel published the new version of xlstproc this week
(today, apparently). It also appears to work with DocBook 1.53.0.  I
downloaded and refreshed with the latest RPMs (libxml-2-2.4.24-1 and
libxslt-1.0.20-1) from ftp://speakeasy.rpmfind.net/pub/libxml/ and all the
XML docs I couldn't process before went through without a glitch.

Way to go, Daniel.
