Hi everyone,
Is there a workaround at all? I see this issue still happening with the 
latest repo:

# dsu
terminate called after throwing an instance of 'xercesc_3_1::TranscodingException'
# rpm -q dell-system-update

I've noticed that the value of MALLOC_PERTURB_ seems to have an impact on 
being able to start dsu at all but I have not yet found a way to make it
