I just hacked together a quick XML-RPC test app in Python (attached) and
it says the same problem as you got, so there's actually an issue with
the version of Wordpress that you're using, in that it's not spitting
out valid XML in response to XML-RPC requests. Odds are the
Performancing plugin strips leading whitespace, and drivel could do the
same (very untested patch to hack this in also attached), but that's up
to the main developers whether they want to do this or not.
