Problem Description:

Calling XMLParse() with xmlText passed as string can fail with a since Java 8u231. Only seems to happen on Windows, not Linux.

Steps to Reproduce:

<cfsavecontent variable="xmlText"><test>. </test></cfsavecontent>
<cfdump var="#XMLParse(xmlText)#">

Actual Result:

When the code is in D:\inetpub\wwwroot\test\xmlparse-test.cfm you get

access denied ("" "D:\inetpub\wwwroot\test\<test>. <\test>" "read") 

(so it tries to open "current template directory + xmlText" as file)

Expected Result:

Dump of the XML-Object created by XMLParse().

Any Workarounds:

The trigger is the "dot space" in the XML,  if the space is encoded as "&#x20;" it works! Downgrading to Java 8u221 also works.
