Hi Rahul,

thanks for having a look at this.

We do not use any specific features of xalan 2.7.0. There is one 
transform() call in XMLConfiguration for writing the DOM to a file, 
which works without problems. The two test classes that cause trouble 
try to transform a SAX source into a DOM.

I can test other versions in the next few days. And yes: it is a pain!
