Description Ralf Corsepius 2005-07-10 06:05:27 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.7.8) Gecko/20050513 Fedora/1.7.8-2

Description of problem:
Given this document (test.xml):
<opt name="foo"/>

Trying to evaluate xpath child::opt/attribute::name 
with libxml-2.6.19 (FC4) fails to find the attribute:

# xmlint --shell test.xml
/ > xpath child::opt/attribute::name
Object is a Node Set :
Set contains 0 nodes:

With libxml-2.6.16 (FC3) the same succeeds:
# xmllint --shell test.xml
/ > xpath child::opt/attribute::name
Object is a Node Set :
Set contains 1 nodes:
1  ATTRIBUTE name
    TEXT
      content=foo

However, xpath child::opt/attribute::* with both versions succeeds.


Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
libxml2-2.6.19-1

How reproducible:
Always

Steps to Reproduce:

Actual Results:  see above.

Expected Results:  function.

This bug renders libxml2 unusable for development of applications I am working on.

  opt/@name 
in the meantime.
