I checked in the patches for both LibXML2 and XMLSec. As I wrote
in LibXML2 the patch does not touch the core library but the C14N
test program. On xmlsec side, it is a patch in the core library.

I would appreciate if you can either apply the xmlsec patch attached
to my previous message or get fresh xmlsec sources from CVS and try
this patch with your examples.
