Package: libxslt1.1
Version: 1.1.18-1
Severity: important

[Set severity to important since this is a regression that makes
existing XSLT files fail.]

This is upstream bug 352907[*], still marked an unconfirmed after
more than two months, but I can reproduce it under Debian.

[*] http://bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cgi?id=352907

As this page says:

  Using xsltproc, an xsl:copy-of of a node set that contains an
  attribute value with an escaped ampersand (whether & or &)
  causes the following error: error : unterminated entity reference
