[New-bugs-announce] [issue10149] Data truncation in expat parser

New submission from Maciek J <egil at wp.pl>:

Not sure if this is a Python problem or an expat problem, but I get truncated data while parsing XML documents.

This particular project is for parsing an XML file of Wikipedia dump.

The attached files are:
* xml-parse-revisions.py - parser script
* revision-test.xml - input XML
* revision-test.xml.sql - output XML
* revision_create.sql - not really needed for this test case, but attached for completeness

You can notice that the output file sometimes contains too short values for the "timestamp". Also note that if you add whitespace to the input XML, then different timestamps will be truncated.

My Python is 2.6.6.
