I really appreciate the fast handling of this issue, but I am not sure
if the latest fix from Alex solves the problem with validating against
an external DTD as well (which was mentioned by Tony Zhang). I still
cannot set a _property_ which is needed to validate against an external
DTD or schema which I control by myself. Is there any other possibility
to accomplish this?
