I don't know why this solution escaped me before, but I fixed this with a
simple custom class:

class MySAXParser extends org.apache.xerces.parsers.SAXParser
	public MySAXParser()
		setEntityResolver( new MyEntityResolver() );

and creating the SAXBuilder with:

SAXBuilder builder = new SAXBuilder( "MySAXParser", true );

duh duh duh
