Are you using the i18n transformer in a subsitemap of the sitemap where 
it is declared?

There's currently a problem with components that have relative URLs in 
their configuration (the message catalogue location is such an URL) and 
that are used in subsitemap.

The problem comes from the fact that the relative context is that of the 
sitemap where a component is firstly used, which in the case of 
subsitemaps is different from the context where the component was declared.

That can be solved by implementing the "multi-relative source resolving" 
I've been talking about recently, but for now you have to make sure that 
the i18n transformer is only used in the sitemap where it is declared.
