I wrote "mtxslt", and it really is derived from "xslt", and the changes aren't
great.  I'm very surprised that it doesn't work with Saxon.  To test it, you
should use "xslt", but set


to select Saxon instead of Xalan.  That will tell you whether this problem has
anything to do with "mtxslt" or not.  As for a better solution, the Ant guys
tell me that the code on the head of 1.6 in CVS should do the same as "mtxslt"
(I'll wait until 1.6 is released to check this for myself), so compiling that
latest version for yourself might be worth a try.
