Description of problem:

Using this version of XML::Dumper I ran into some very strange
problems which weren't expected during storing a Perl hash into XML.

E.g. if a key contain char ', strange things are happen (value isn't
stored in XML.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Create a hash where a key contain a '

Actual Results:  Problems

Expected Results:  No problems

Additional info:

All issues I ran into are solved using current version 0.67.
According to the ChangeLog, many issues were solved since 0.40.

I found version 0.40 very unuseful...

Both Fedora Core release 1.91 (FC2) and the Fedora Core development
tree contain the package "perl-XML-Dumper-0.71-1".

Does this package solve your issues?

perl-XML-Dumper could use a spec rewrite

Rewritten specfile

0.4 had indeed some serious XML escaping bugs.	The following trivial script
demonstrates the issues with it, and works as expected with 0.71:

  use XML::Dumper;
  my %h = ( "foo'bar" => '"quu<>x', 'b"a"r' => "baz" );
  print new XML::Dumper->pl2xml(\%h);

Attached is a specfile rewrite which fixes the build error with 0.71-3 as well
as some other smallish issues (see %changelog).
