I don't think those are libxml2.

libxml2 seems reasonably robust, but if you throw binary files at it then
you are taking your chances.  

But I don't see what the same thing.  Check again if you are running a
reasonably current libxml2 (2.4.xx).  And if you can really make libxml2
hang with bad formed HTML then make an example available.
