This is also a problem when trying to load an XML file with a DTD: the path to the DTD file in the XML catalog is parsed incorrectly (converting "file:///" to "file:/"), so the DTD can't be loaded (the error given is "failed to load external entity").

This may be a libxml2 bug, as it broke between libxml versions 1.9.1 and 1.9.2, although the xmllint command line tool is still able to correctly load the DTD.
