  I'm not 100% sure I understood the problem, the XML Catalog implementation
of libxml tries to implement to the letter the algorithms from section 7.1
and 7.2 of the XML Catalog spec:
  Not that the algorithm in 7.1.2 gives priority to system identifier
processing, for example if you have a rewriteSystem entry matching the
Public Identifier won't even be examined.

 It seems that you have a problem for an external Identifier resolution.
The only possible change I have introduced in libxml default handler is that
once the External Identifier Resolution has been done, an additional
URI Resolution may be used to complete the process in the case the first
lookup returned an URL which is not accessible locally.

 Can you make sure that the libxml2 "make Catatests" tests pass correctly
on your platform ?
