xmllint reports both line numbers (at least to humans):

 -:7: error: Opening and ending tag mismatch: one line 1 and not-one

... as does Saxon('s XML parser):

 Error on line 7
   Error reported by XML parser: "</one>" zum Abschließen des Elements
   auf Zeile 1 erwartet

RXP reports the line number of the mismatched end tag:

 Error: Mismatched end tag: expected </one>, got </not-one>
  in unnamed entity at line 7 char 10 of <stdin>
