Conclusion: Some combinations of expat/pyexpat cannot parse xmlrpc
responses from some Zope usage, e.g., ZSyncer's, whereas the parser based
on PyXML's sgmlop module can.

Here's the expat installation on my FreeBSD boxen:

  expat-1.95.5        XML 1.0 parser written in C

But then there is lib/python/Shared/DC/xml/pyexpat which seems to bundle
its own copy of expat.

Possibly this is Zope's version of DLL-hell.
