[jdom-interest] How to supress external DTD error

I am trying to parse a simple document being sent to me over TCP. I am using
the SAXBuilder class with its default constructor. Problem is the XML doc I
am receiving specifies a DTD. Even though I am not validating the document I
get an error saying that the external DTD file is not found.

If I create an empty DTD file it is happy, but I don't want to do this.

Is there any way I can stop it trying to open the external DTD or supress
the error and make it continue?

I did try using setErrorHandler with an error handler that just returned on
error but that didn't work.
