Can't do much myself right now, but I did note on upgrading from 1.0
to 1.1 that the setNamespace() method had all changed and broken (?)
in the transition, so it's probably in the method itself. (If this
is any help...). In my own application code I just commented out all
of the setNamespace stuff since I've not yet got around to working
out my own bugs with XPath.
