Thanks for the note.

I figured it out: the problem is with (Py)Expat: My M2Crypto
xmlrpc-over-ssl demo also failed with the same error. (It used to work
with some older version of (Py)Expat.)

Zope's bundled xmlrpclib doesn't pick up my copy of the Sgmlop parser which
is bundled with PyXML. A 1-line patch later, it does, and SgmlopParser
handles ZSyncer's xmlrpc call properly where (Py)Expat doesn't.

So ZSyncer does, now.

Can you check which parser your copy of ZSyncer is loading?
