      Description

      If an element has more than 23 attributes, an xml signature over that element will fail to
      validate. Instead an ArrayIndexOutOfBoundsException will be thrown. This is due to a bug
      in the underlying Apache canonicalization implementaion. It has been fixed in later releases
      of the Apache XMLSec libraries (1.4 and up), but JDK 6 is based on 1.3.1 and thus this bug
      should be fixed/backported.

      This was reported by a user who was trying to validate a signed ODT (Open Office) document.
