The semantic of xsl:include is defined in the XSLT spec, it's an URI
reference pointing to RFC 2396. That mean you compute against a base URI.
The base URI would come from the document relative file name you're passing
on the command line and somehow maybe the conversion from that file path
to an URI has changed between versions. Of course having spaces or / in
filenames makes the conversion more hazardeous
Seeing exactly what is happening would require a *complete* example
not your shalel output, because sorry I can't use a debugger on your shell
output. Now you can use a debugger on xsltproc to see what is happening
there is you don't want to provide a reproduceable example as requested twice
now. We take patches too usually...

Most likely a change done in libxml2 when the base is computed for
the document. You won't find anything in libxslt, or in the package changelog
at best in libxml2 internal ChangeLog.
