Package: libxml2-utils
Version: 2.9.1+dfsg1-3
Severity: normal

In case of bad usage, xmllint should terminate with a non-zero
exit status (more precisely, 1), but this is not always the case.
For instance, while "xmllint" fails, "xmllint --nonet" doesn't,
though the error by the user is very similar.
