  okay, it's not just my setup then

At this point, I'm not sure *what* I have. The test fails
consistently on my work desktop (Ubuntu 11.10), yet if I build on an
11.10 live desktop with the same compiler, it works. If I copy over
the binary from my work system to the live desktop, it fails. But if
I copy that same binary to the FC17 VM, it works. (Note that other
systems at my office, with older versions of Ubuntu, give the same
error; it's not just my machine.)

If there were a good way of getting an execution trace, I could do a
diff between what's happening on my system versus on FC17. Doing
"step" in a loop in GDB doesn't work, however, returning clearly
bogus results (e.g. a call to __xmlRaiseError() that doesn't occur
in a normal debugger run).

  ah, that's what I would have suggested to try out, damn ...

This will have to be left unresolved for now, until/unless I can get
a better handle on it :-(

  I could try to put Ubuntu on a VM too and see what is going on.
Did you manage to isolate what specific test is failing, doing the
same through xmllint command line test might be easier to debug,
