Yes, but not until Monday.   I'd prefer to email the schema config file
directly to you.  It's not exactly senstive information but I'd rather
not have the file on the web.

I believe the problem occurs when the 'attributetype' declaration
does not start at the beginning of the line, when it is preceeded
with spaces (or possibly tabs).

Naturally.  I wrote so that if you find it in HEAD you can fix it.

Thanks for looking into it.
