 It seems to work fine for me but more testing including on
windows would be appreciated. For example one of the patch
changes tries to cope with _vsprintf availability (or not)
on some of the Microsoft tool !

 Patrick, it seems the NEWS doesn't get rebuild I will have to check
why and do this manually.

  If everything looks okay I will push 2.9.2 on Thursday,

   thanks in advance,

cppcheck finds following error: Common realloc mistake: 'out' nulled
but not freed upon failure

  ah another one :) thanks ! Patch looks good, pushed 

I've attached the patch. It is only compile tested.

  It's actually hard to exercise that code as it requires the memory
  debugging which is usually not activated, you need to configure
with --with-mem-debug to activate that code, but then the resulting
libraries can only be used for debug, as free() instead of xmlFree()
or related libxml2 routines will lead to crash.

  That code helped finding a lot of leaks and memory issues
a decade ago :)
