The wiki documents the order, there's an XML schema in the distribution, and there's also a full example file included (I think called example-shibboleth2.xml) that shows most/all of the possible elements in the right places.

Before you bother, note there are a ton of major bugs across all the ODBC drivers on Linux of varying versions, so unless this is a randomly lucky combination...

I keep all the bugs filed on that open in Jira, even though they're not our bugs.

That seems like a namespace bug, that's very strange. Something's badly corrupt in the file, something fundamental.
