 Possibly the simplest way forward is for Wordpress to stop using the XML
 Parser library (xml_parser_create() and friends) and switch to the
 experimental but working XML-RPC library (xmlrpc_server_create() etc.).
 This should avoid the problem as presumably it uses native libxml2.

 If we can come up with a reliable replacement approach I'd be fine to do
 that.  So far I haven't been able to reproduce this on any of my systems,
 which are probably all using older versions of libxml.
