Re-reading the above linked thread I feel fairly sure this is the same 
issue. The last mail in that thread links to a XALANJ issue David 

David says:

I don't know if this is related, but thanks Google and
"line endings" "xsl:comment" ...
"<xsl:copy> introduces inappropriate line-end characters processing 

Reading that issue it looks like it is the cause of our problem. I would 
also suggest the fix in the plugins build file (fix line endings using 
an ANT task) would be a suitable workaround here.
