Removing the "LoadFile /usr/lib/libxml2.so.2" line from /etc/apache2/mods-available/mod_security2.so works fixes the immediate problem and apache does load OK and serves the root page after this. So this fix is a candidate for a simple SRU to Precise.

However, I am concerned to make sure that mod-security is actually functional after this change, in case it can't resolve symbols further down the line.

Although I note from /proc/../maps that /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/libxml2.so.2.7.8 has been loaded, I'd like to make sure before proposing a replacement SRU.

I am unfamiliar with mod-security itself. Could someone affected by this bug please post a test case with expected results that exercises the XML functionality in mod-security that would use libxml2.so.2?
