Please review a fix for the issue as reported that the SAXParser does
not close the underlying reader. This code always existed in Xerces, but
it was somehow removed as the comment for the closeReaders method
showed. The comment stated "readers are closed in the endEntity method",
that is true in general. However when the parsing is interrupted, as in
this case by an Exception, the endEntity method won't get called, but
closeReaders does through the Parser's cleanup process. This patch
recovers the original Xerces' code.
