In libxml2-2.4.20, there is new code in vstateVPush of valid.c that limits the vstateNr counter to 1024. Some of my xml documents hit this limit and consequently fail validation. Is this limit necessary or should it be some huge value? Another oddity, I am running under CYGWIN when this fails; I tried this at home (linux) last night and couldn't get it to fail. Maybe I am missing something or this is a compiler bug. Attached is a file you can try to verify this with: xmllint --valid --noout vbug.xml Charlie B.
