Comment 3 Martin Prpič 2015-11-02 14:16:34 UTC
Statement:

This issue did not affect the versions of libxml2 as shipped with Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5 and 6 as they did not include support for LZMA compression support.

Comment 4 Martin Prpič 2015-11-02 14:58:21 UTC
LZMA compression support was introduced in libxml2 in:

2.8.0: May 23 2012
Features: add lzma compression support (Anders F Bjorklund)

Comment 5 Daniel Veillard 2015-11-02 16:45:39 UTC
So lzma support in 2.9.2 seems to be broken that's why Fedora seems not affected.

But the bug is present since all version 2.8.0 onward.
Seems I managed to get a first fix for the issue, I will add as attachment
