I was afraid of that -- have you updated the Java install just to see if
it would magically go away?

How are you building the XML strings; can you not wrap that such that
the output goes to a variable instead of or before the file so can do
the search on it then?

Or, if nothing else the old "sprinkle a bunch of 'We are here' output
statements through the code that serve to at least do binary splits of
before/after a given routine/statement in a routine. Hopefully at least
that will be repetitive if it does happen that it is the same routine or
few routines or, conversely, if it is Java would hopefully identify a
specific routine there that is buggy or has bad inputs on occasion.
