Sorry to keep hitting this list, but I had to correct this note.  Editing line 4497 of parser.c in version 2.9.0 of libxml2 actually does correct the behavior.  When I wrote this note I hadn't quite edited the line the same way as before, and so I caused processing errors for other parsing before fixing my typo.

But it is complaining about the <KeyName> field contained in the xmlsec KeyInfo block.
