Description:
------------
---
From manual page: http://www.php.net/manual/pl/function.libxml-get-last-error.php
---
Tested on PHP 5.3.0, Apache 2.2.11

LibXMLError Object property 'message' contains LF (ASCII 10) at the end of 
string.
Makes it harder to compare error messages that should be ignored or assign 
translation strings.

Test script:
---------------
libxml_use_internal_errors(true);
// Define xml string that contains known error
$vcard = new SimpleXMLElement("<vCard xmlns='vcard-temp'></vcard>");

// Retrieve last LibXMLError object
$last_error = libxml_get_last_error();

// Should be true
var_dump($last_error->message == "xmlns: URI vcard-temp is not absolute");

// Workaround
var_dump(trim($last_error->message) == "xmlns: URI vcard-temp is not absolute");

Expected result:
----------------
bool(true)
bool(true)

Actual result:
--------------
bool(false)
bool(true)

In my opinion this is not a bug, as I understand the error message
as "human-readable informative error message"[1]. And I would
rather check for the error code to avoid issues due to libxml
changing the error messages or localization issues.
