Looking at the code, that's quite logical because the stored document

correct, as long as you're getting the same serializer instance from the

Yep, but there the document locator wasn't taken into account and the
base URL of the document was always set to

I've now changed the code to set it to http://localhost/ if
setDocumentLocator wasn't called. Maybe this should be something that is
configurable but for now it fixes this problem.

from CVS. If you don't want to use a complete CVS-version of Cocoon, you
can grab just the file
