[xml/sgml-pkgs] Bug#852486: libxml2: Parsing <dd>xxx<dd>yyy uses too much memory

Package: libxml2
Version: 2.9.4+dfsg1-2.1
Severity: normal

Dear Maintainer,

When parsing the attached HTML file (which uses 25 <dd> tags), libxml 
starts to use inordinate amounts of memory.

See https://debbugs.gnu.org/cgi/bugreport.cgi?bug=25210#8 for the 
original bug against Emacs.
