Thanks for your reply,

I looked into bug 10026 and found out that there has been some issues 
with dtds stored inside jar-files, which is exactly our case. This is 
the first time i've actually came across some type of cause for this 
problem, so i'll look into this further before i start digging into 
tomcat fundamentals.This might be of real help to us.

Does anyone else have any experience with storing dtd:s inside 
jar-files? We're using LAX (Lazy API for XML) along with the java 1.5 
xml parser. Seems like the bug could originate from one of those packages.
