Well it's wrong because name isn't namespaced anyway.
I have committed a fix to CVS.
There's also an outstanding build bug when using gcc3.3, which is the out-of-the-box compiler for OSX. I now have an accout on gnu-darwin.org and on my chum Pete's OSX, so should have that squashed shortly. I'll drop a new release then.
On the XPath side, I've been fiddling around with numbers and strings and whatnot, which is fine, but kind of dodging the issue. Well, I'm dodging no longer - last night I did a bit of scaffolding for Steps. Yep, selecting nodes is on the way.
