You are probably the victim of an XML parser getting more strict with
the XML spec.

Having comments outside the root element of a document is _not_ well
formed, and any XML parser is free to reject that.  If you move those
comments INSIDE the root element, you should also lose the exceptions.

The separate issue that needs to be addressed is why is a thread
spinning if there is an error with a document?  Cocoon needs to be
able to handle this failure more gracefully and shut down any threads
that were created for processing purposes.
