  No it's even simpler than that, I don't want to hear about it.

Okay :-)

Since the older gnome-xml isn't parsing it correctly for me, I assume
that I can't do much about it.

  Yup, tweaking the input is the simplest

So in stead of letting libxml-2 handle the situation of a "]]>" in my
CDATA-body by creating two such blocks, I decided to replace it with 


  Hum ... Since what you are embedding in the CDATA section is XML
with a CDATA section, I don't think you can do that without some
escaping. That's one way to do it.

Could it be that this is behaviour of libxml-2 when in my data, the
string "]]>" is found?

  Yes that's the usual way to proceed, e.g.
see the paragraphs suggesting this.

For now I've created a small check-data for "]]>" at the writer side and
a "undo-that-check"-type of function at the reader-side:


This solves my problem for now, nevertheless I am open for better
suggestions from the mailinglist of course. Lucky me we have all the
memory and cpu-power we want, I'd dislike using this for high-
performance situations :-\

  You could also use another simpilar escaping like turning one
of the ] into ] but I don't see how to avoid escaping.
