GDAL's GML code in CVS has not been tested against newer Xerces parsers. I
actually use a snapshot of Xerces from 2002-01-23 but hopefully version
1.7.0 or shortly after should be OK.

I would also be willing to upgrade to Xerces 2.x if you find that alot

BTW, I intend to further refine my GML support, likely in early October.
