Problem starting Alfresco 4.0

I am trying to setting up a new instance of Alfresco 4.0.
We wanted to test the new version first to see if everything is running fine with our custom developments and second to see the new features in Alfresco 4.0.

But I do have an issue when starting tomcat. When Alfresco tries to load the site permission definition, I do have this exception thrown :

org.springframework.beans.factory.BeanCreationException: Error creating bean with name 'siteService_permissionBootstrap' defined in class path resource [alfresco/site-services-context.xml]: Invocation of init method failed; nested exception is 09110000 Couldn't obtain DTD schema to validate permission model.

When opening the highlighted xml file, there is no DTD given. As well our own permissionDefinition could not be loaded for exactly the same problem. I have noticed that in previouses versions, the DTD was commented (see below). Uncomment it did not change anything.

<!–PUBLIC '-//ALFRECSO//DTD PERMISSIONS//EN' 'permissionSchema.dtd' –>

<!– Note: the above is commented out as spring does not seem to find the dtd –>

<!– ============================================ –>
<!– The base permission model for the repository –>
<!– ============================================ –>

<!– The parent permission checks were removed 20/1/2006 –>

does anyone has any idea on how to fix the problem?

thank you very much
