Bummer & thanks for testing and the report.

I changed some of the dbtoepub architecture to try to fix this bug
related to XIncludes and named entities:

I'm becoming increasingly unhappy with the quality of dbtoepub itself
as an end-user tool, although it's critical for the current testing
framework. Specifically, Ruby doesn't include mature XML libraries in
its standard library, so I'm forced to call out to xmllint. In this
case, I'm running up against my inability to collapse XIncludes,
collapse entities, and validate. I either need to choose --postvalid
(breaks entities) or --valid (breaks XIncludes). I suppose I could do
two steps, but...

In the meantime, you can always get rid of entities before handing off
documents to dbtoepub (--noent). I'll work on a fix now.
