An XML request with large number of XML entities is rejected by the ACE XML Gateway as malformed. The Event Log contains the following message: "Exception while checking SOAP Envelope: Could not parse XML document: Entity: line 1: parser error : Detected an entity reference loop". 

This issue occurs when the policy contains the XML-based virtual service that runs on the Flex Path. The message is in XML format and contains 500000 or more XML entities.
