Wow. Ross, this is vital. So please do help to start the process.

The area that i have seen to cause a lot of grief is File URLs
(and a recent thread shows that it may be happening again).
One place that this issue arose was when we were getting the
Catalog Entity Resolver support into Cocoon. There was untold
grief when reports came in that it would work on UNIX but not
on Windows. After a fix it was then the other way around.

Bernhard Huber came to the rescue and add some JUnit tests
to help track it down. Many thanks again B. However, i remember
that Bernhard warned that JUnit tests could be hard to maintain.
