On Windows the file property of libXMLError objects contains file:
URIs. These are invalid for current versions of PHP (tested 5.6.9)
with current versions of libxml2 (tested 2.9.2). It worked as
expected with PHP 5.4.19 and libxml2 2.7.8.

This bug affects, for instance, the configure script of the PHP

I don't know if that's an issue with libxml2 or PHP's wrapper.

Test script:

$doc = new DomDocument();
// the file xml-error.xml is supposed to have at least one error
$errors = libxml_get_errors();


Expected result:
string(43) "file:///C:/Users/cmb/php/bugs/xml-error.xml"

Actual result:
string(41) "file:/C:/Users/cmb/php/bugs/xml-error.xml"

I've found that the issue is caused by a regression in libxml2,
and filed a respective ticket:

I'm changing the status of this ticket to "suspended", until the
issue has been resolved upstream.

To not forget about it: there is a workaround for the related
issue when such broken file:/ URIs are used for PHP stream
wrappers[1], which should be removed when the bug has been
resolved upstream.
