thanks for the help!
I tracked down the error to the in-memory parsing routine. The problem is
that parsing stops after
the first chunk for some reason - right somewhere in the comment. The buffer
that I'm using is 1024 bytes in size, and what happened with the comments
was that the blew up the file beyond the 1024 bytes limit. so the parser
only parses the first chunk, and after that doesn't parse further. I have to
investigate this further, but maybe you are familiar with in-memory parsing
and can take a look at the code (basically the example, a bit tweaked to
work with c++ istreams):
///// PARSE XML DOCUMENT
xmlDoc* doc = NULL;
const int bufferSize = 1024;
if (is.gcount() > 0)
ctxt = xmlCreatePushParserCtxt(NULL, NULL, buffer, is.gcount(), NULL);
xmlParserErrors result = XML_ERR_OK;
while (is.gcount() > 0)
result = (xmlParserErrors)xmlParseChunk(ctxt, buffer, is.gcount(), 0);
result = (xmlParserErrors)xmlParseChunk(ctxt, buffer, 0, 1);
doc = ctxt->myDoc;

I can't reproduce this.
Running "xmllint --debug" on your fragment does show the actor nodes
in the the output. This means the actor nodes do exist in the tree
generated by the parser.
I've also used lots of xslt files containing many multiline comments
with libxml/libxslt without any problems.
I'm using libxml version 2.4.23.
