I think the trick is to add the flag "-shadow" when you run swig. 
Here is the command line that I use:

swig -python -shadow -I/w2/XML/Libxml/libxml2-2.4.13/include/libxml pydom.i

  The same here except for the include path

And here is my pydom.i:

  Mine is based on yours, very close.

import pydom
doc = pydom.xmlParseFile("test1.xml")
print 'version: %s' % pydom.x2c(doc.version)

OK. I don't understand this either.  I'm using Python 2.2, but I do
not believe there is anything in it that requires version 2.2.

I tried it with Python 2.1 (after rebuilding the .so with Python
2.1 include files).  My tree walk test runs OK.

  What version of SWIG ? I have swig-1.3a5 installed. Older versions
had a lot of troubles parsing the include files.

  tried version_get which from my reading of the C code should work,
but it fails too ... weird. I have tried with both 1.5 and 2.1 without

SWIG does some "name mangling" (at least when I generate shadow
classes) to keep methods in separate classes unique.  For the
xmlDoc, in my generated code, I believe the function is called

  yep seen that but for me it generates a version_get and version_set
but I can't get access to them either.

  More testing is definitely needed,
