It's not yours, it's mine :( Somehow there was a missed call
to register known namespaces in case of xpointer in URI
attribute. The fix is trivial and already checked in CVS :)
If you would like to get a patch that fixes just this problem
then you can find it attached to the corresponding bug:


Thanks for reporting the problem! And sorry for inconvenience :(
Using xpointer expressions in URI attribute is not a common
practice (almost nobody supports it). Thus this code path did not
get a lot of testing :( BTW, would you mind if I include your
example file in xmlsec test suite to make sure that this would
not be broken later?
