That's the million lira question - did 2.6 fix other bugs in our cvs? 
Anyone? Bueller?

Hmmmm, I had thought this should only affect the build when patching 
web.xml (or other xml file with an external dtd over the net but I don't 
think there are any others ATM).

So were you enabling uploads?  The workaround if you're stuck on the 
train should be to disable the build-time patch of web.xml and just 
patch it by hand like we used to do "back in the day".
