endElement called twice

Hi,
I am using SAX parser, for some reason, the endElement method was called twice for the last element of a document.
I understand that for a large element value, the charaters method might be called many times. But this endElement should not be called twice, right?
Did I miss something?
Thanks!

Huh? If that's really the case, the only thing you can do is to change the parser implementation or tweak the XML document until the parser behaves correctly, I'm afraid.
