XML Schema catalogs

I'm having problems using an XML catalog with the Xerces 2 parser. Here is the code that I used to add an entity resolver:

I am using version 1.1 of Sun's Resolver package.
The code listed above compiles OK. The following is the CatalogManager.properties file:

When running my program it reads in the catalog correctly, as shown in the following output:

This is the catalog.xml files contents:

The following is the error message that gets return after running the parser:

Each time the error occurs, the entity resolver tries to resolve the following:

I don't know why it adds the base directories to the name of the schema file as I have explicitly told the entity resolver to not use absolute locations.
Lastly, here is a sample of the xml file which contains the "lookup name" for the xml catalog to look up:

As you can see, the xml file only references SchemaFile.xsd, and the entity resolver at runtime should lookup that name in the catalog and substitute file:///home/acct/mshea/generated/schema/SchemaFile.xsd for it, but it does not.
Any help would be appreciated and if I'm doing this the wrong way, then I'd definately want to nkow about it.
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
