Control: retitle -1 pandoc-citeproc: fails to load random csl styles

Not really "crashed", but fails to load random CSL styles.

Wanted to add this, although I think this isn't really the matter:
$ cat test.bib
  author = 	 {Kopka, Helmut and Daly, Patrick W.},
  title = 	 {A guide to LaTeX and electronic publishing},
  publisher = 	 {Addison-Wesley},
  year = 	 2004,
  address = 	 {Harlow},
  edition = 	 {Fourth}}

I think there is really something wrong loading random CSL styles,
further testing:
$ echo "@reference1" | pandoc --bibliography=test.bib
<p><span class="citation">Kopka and Daly (2004)</span></p>
<div class="references">
<p>Kopka, Helmut, and Patrick W. Daly. 2004. <em>A Guide to LaTeX and
Electronic Publishing</em>. Fourth. Harlow: Addison-Wesley.</p>
$ echo "@reference1" | pandoc --csl=foo.csl
--bibliography=test.bibpandoc-citeproc: foo.csl: openBinaryFile: does
not exist (No such file or directory)
pandoc: Error running filter pandoc-citeproc
$ echo "@reference1" | pandoc --csl=chicago-author-date.csl
pandoc-citeproc: error while parsing the XML string
pandoc: Error running filter pandoc-citeproc
