[xml] libxml2: xmlcatalog --sgml --noout --add <catalog> generates odd behavior

Hi All,

I don't have the latest versions of libxml2/libxslt because they won't install on my FC2 machine. Here are the versions:


I noticed the odd behavior while packaging simplified docbook. I simply wanted to register the central/package catalog /etc/sgml/docbook-simple.cat in the root catalog /etc/sgml/catalog.

I used the command:

/usr/bin/xmlcatalog --sgml --noout --add \ "/etc/sgml/docbook-simple.cat"

The odd behavior is that xmlcatalog actually modified the docbook-simple.cat file, by removing any comments and also removing the
SGML catalog directive.

(Yes, I know I can also use /usr/bin/install-catalog, but that does something quite funky as well: it adds a
'CATALOG "/etc/sgml/catalog"' line to the end of docbook-simple.cat.)

Attached is the docbook-simple.cat file.

I can work around this, but thought I should nonetheless report it.
