Description of problem:
PyXML has a bug that makes it so that handle_end_tag is not called on
application objects when an XML file is validated or parsed.  The bug has been
fixed in version 8.1 (and probably 8.0 too) of PyXML.  This was tested by
installing the 8.1 RPM found at the PyXML web site:


Note that their RPM conflicts with the 4Suite rpm.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.  Write an application that uses xmlval or xmlproc and attempts to
    do something with closing tags.
2.  Run the application.


Actual Results:  handle_end_tag is never called.

Expected Results:  handle_end_tag should be called for every closing tag

Additional info:

Sorry for the terseness of the steps above.  I'm keeping this short because the
fix is simple: upgrade to PyXML version 8.1.

Note that I see that Phoebe, like RedHat 8.0, still uses version 7.1 of PyXML.

This bug is also present in RH 9.0.

Note that I made a mistake in the original bug report.  The version of PyXML
shipped is 0.7.1 and the required version is (now) 0.8.2.

I don't know why I missed the "0." at the start of the version numbers... :-/

Lest there be any doubt about this: this is a showstopper.

Rawhide should soon have 0.8.2.

Thanks for the bug-report,
